    Hey thats the conclusion I came to last night and I get it no hard feelings on my part anywhere. Because to be honest one should study and learn enough to avoid situations like this. But I'm grateful for the whole experience because I'm learning ever step of the way.so that question has been thoroughly answered for me. Thanks guys

    Yes I agree and I plan on sending it for shinsa after enough study. Just wanted to atleast know i didn't over pay. As for better deals to be had i agree I've seen really screaming deals pop up on here but let's me realistic newbies like me don't have a chance of getting them I monitor this forum daily and the "good deals" are snatched up before I have a chance to blink. So 2grand seems not bad to me for the blade.plus my first nihonto itch is scratched! It gives me time to study appreciate and save more for the really good stuff! Thanks guys for all the help

    I'm totally thankful for everyone's insight and advice and will try my best to follow the proper coarse. But no Ones seems to have any advice on one of my more important questions(at least to me). So ill ask again.can I get some honest opinion as whether I paid toomuch for it? 2225$ (usd) as I don't plan on selling it anytime soon but it would be nice to know I've made a good investment. I have 12 days to make my mind up. I know they ways say what matters most is if you like it. For me its true to a degree I'd still prefer to have good resale value when the times comes. Better yet id like yo know what a sword like this is worth? Thanks guys for helping a green horn!

    Thats what I've read in a few posts. I've never used the powder yet on the sword as I just got it and have not re oiled ot yet as well. I plan on using coffee filters to wipe off old oil and and a micro fiber cloth to apply it? Last thing I want to do is dull the polish. From the advice I've been getting is as long as I take good care of it won't need a polish for a long time and proper care should keep the wares from getting anyworse

    Would love to see yasurime and coloration of the nakago in detail, because nakago shape is something along the lines of what became more popular from 1665-1700 onwards - long, with pronounced taper. ( here's some pics of the nakago the best I can do with my phone hope ot helps)
