There is no fascinating for me the read about behading with a sword. I wonder if people think about a rifle how it would kill another human? Cutting tests where a cruel quality check for a sword. There is no place for romance.

Give the sword its peace.

Agree, the chances of that are almost nil. Just didn't work like that. Also not practical knowing which part of the sword is the cutting area.
Anyways, disregard the theories and stick to the practical.

I think you went and got romantic on us.
Romancing the sword is a common theme with newbies.

 

 

Couldn't help it. My bad  :). Anyway, we have decided to sell this Minamoto.

The Third of Three:  Not as interesting perhaps as the first and second. This was a trophy sword won in a kendo tournament circa 1938-1939? It has no writing on Nakago. Hamon seems rather too perfectly symmetric? Could it have been done in some sort of mass production shop? We plan to keep this one as well:

All,

 

The Motooki katana (2nd of three) is on its way to NBTHK Shinsa.
