Used for iaido and tameshigiri by the previous owner, the price reflects scratches in the monouchi and shinae from a bend that was corrected in the mune, but with a persisting twist in the ha.

It doesn't matter how slow you go as long as you don't stop.

Oh, yeah, this is the blade I liked last time, even though I'm not into shinsakuto. Just wish it hadn't been bent in tameshigiri!

yes, between photobucket and forum issues, this is the 3rd time posting this blade. as, as ken has pointed out each time, i wish the blade hadn't been bent either!
on the other hand, this blade has the look and elegance of an art sword. without the bend, it wouldn't be offered at the price it is!
one does wonder what the previous owner must have done to make it take the set that it did, but it has been mostly corrected and would still make a nice blade for iaido practitioners. tachikaze is easily achieved during suburi. i've enjoyed owning this blade as an art piece, but it's time to move it on.
i'm motivated to sell before SF Token Kai, so if anyone's interested, make me an offer.

i showed this blade to a forum member at the SF Token Kai who suggested he might be able to correct the remaining warp. if someone is interested in buying, i can forward that contact information along. this blade is a beauty and if the remaining warp is corrected, it would be an iaidoka's dream.
