Which One Of These Swords Would Be More Worth Buying?

Recommended Posts

It depends on which one you want more. Heres a tip. Get a coin, assign one to heads one to tails. flip it. then buy the one you are hoping it lands on.

If it were me though, I would get the Wak, its made by a much higher ranked smith and I <3 the fittings.

Which one do you like better? That's the one you should get.

 

There is no ultimate answer to your question. As an investment blade you can buy either or neither as one is about as good or as bad as the other one ...

András,

if you really have that money to spend, you could get way better swords elsewhere. 

The KATANA is extremely straight, more than I would expect from a KANBUN blade. Perhaps it was made for a cane sword.  The WAKZASHI seems better, but as I said, compare first what you could get from the dealers who are members of the NMB forum.

Jean,

 

Are you looking at katana #713, Osafune Sukemune? Otherwise, I totally agree - if I was looking to spend this kind of money, I'd be looking somewhere else.

 

Best,

John

It's allways difficult when you ask the taste of collectors. I think he asked for help to judge which one he likes more. If i want to buy a VW Golf or Caddy and ask which one i should choose i get the answer buy none, buy another, thats not easy. ????

 

Someone advise me not to buy swords under 10k because lower that price you didn't found art swords. Maybe i feel better not to have an art sword. It depends all on the taste of a collector.

 

Dont forget that we in Germany must pay 19% tax + custom fee on the price inkl. shipping costs buying outside europe
