All,

I know I am obviously biased, but I watch the gendai market like a hawk and while I'll stop short of saying that I am some expert, I am certainly well informed.  This sword is PERFECT! No flaws, 100% polish, a nice double gold foil habaki, and papered.  This is a great - not good, great - deal.

 

Bump it up - $6,000!
