KIZU: Minor or Major

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for the insightful feedback. Now the chapter on flaws will is open and in the back of my head. Now, back to my original dilemma of a good and solid wak. I am open to all recommendations.

Etchu masatoshi is a well regarded smith and this looks to be a good sword. There appears to be some slight openness in the hada near the hamon but personally I would not regard this as too serious.

The important thing is what do you think of it? Its your hard earned cash you are spending and the only opinion that truly matters is yours.

IMHO I think this a good sword and reasonably priced. As many others here have done I have, over the past 10 years, bought swords and fittings from AOI-Art and have never been disappointed with my buys, infact some have been exceptionally good value (again in my opinion)

Decide what you want from the sword you want to buy. Remember they are hand made and therefore likely to have some faults, especially after several hundred years. The faults on this one appear to be minor but again only you can decide if you can live with them.

If I was still in to Shinto swords Masatoshi would be amongst my target smiths.

hope this helps

Well stated Paul. We have a saying in France (free translation)
