  1. Hello, guys. I recently plan to buy a Mukansa level nihonto and I found this one. http://imgur.com/BDpYQXa I want to know your opinions or critics on this sword. Especially what are the flaws of this sword. For me, the only thing which disturb me is the width at the Hassaki which is a little bit thin compare to the average (2,65cm compare to 3cm). Also the price is around 1 000 000 JPY. Do you think it is worth it ? By the way the sword doesn't have any tosogu. I have to ship it to a Japanese craftman so that he can make a scabbard and tsuka for me. Thank you very much.
  2. Thank you for your answer. Here is the photo of this nihonto. What do you think about its quality? Thank you http://imgur.com/BDpYQXa
  3. Hello everyone, I hope everything go well for all you guys. Recently I have spotted a very good Nihonto forged by a Mukansa rank forger. The hamon looks beautiful and the length is quiet good for my size. I measure 172cm. However I have two questions for you guys: 1. The Width at the Hamachi 元幅 is 2,65cm and the one at the Kissaki is 1,95cm. This number seems to be quiet low for me as average width at the Hamachi is around 3cm. The length is 71cm for the blade. Do you think that the blade is too thin? I have searched on forum that if we are not technically trained, the sword may blend if it is too thin. 2. The blade is in Shirasaya. How much does the fabrcation of a new scabbard and tsuka cost in Japan? Thank you very much!!
  4. Hi yes. By the way, the shipping fee to USA is 50$ (the cheapeast with a tracking number). I can understand that it is expensive, but there isn't much I can do. It is international shipping fee. Thank you for your understanding.
  5. Hello everyone, as I changed my mind at the time that a good guy payed me to buy it, I am now selling my 90% new Ebony katana kake again. I have bought it from a reputed Japanese Nihonto seller from Japan. It is in a very good condition without major flaw. There are some very light micro scratch which are almost invisible if we don't look at them carefully. But globally, it is in an excellent like new condition. Here are pictures: http://imgur.com/a/1fLLC You can notice the beautiful color of the Ebony wood which is only used in High grade Katana Kake like this one. This is almost a piece of art crafted by a skillful Japanese artisan. Measurements: Length 18cm Width 47cm Height 37cm Material: Ebony The price is 180$ + shipping fee. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I would be greatful to answer them. Thank you very much!
  6. Hello everyone, Thank you for all your answers. I have asked Roman to make a new pair of thick Seppa for me. He did incredible amazing seppa in the past. Thanks again for your answer.
  7. I am 99% sure that it is fake. The hamon looks so artificial... The guy who made this tried to impress people with all the engraving on the sword, but this just make it even more ridiculous
  8. Hello everyone, today I finally managed to put my 风林火山 tsuba on the kanehide nihonto. However I just noticed that, I have a 0.15cm gap between the tsuba and the inferior seppa. I didn't have such as a gap before, it is certainly because of the thickness of the new tsuba. So what should I do now? I just don't like the fact that things are not well assembled. Should I buy a pair of seppa which are thicker than before so that I don't have any gap? Or I should add a third seppa? Please give me some advices please. Thank you very much in advance!!!
