Are These Scars Fatal Flaw on Shinogi Ji

Recommended Posts

Fatal, no. They’re ware. But they certainly distract from the beauty and price of the blade. If the question is"can they be corrected", we’ll not by a polish. It can be repaired by a skillful polisher that can fill the ware with some metal, but it will still be somewhat visible and pricey. Not worth it Imho.

I have to agree with Jean Pierre.

It generally indicates a lack of forging skill from what I have been told.

It would be hard to realise a good price with those and some people like myself try not to buy flawed blades due to the lack of forging skill and the overall appearance.

Did you buy it like that or did they open during a polish?

Nice mounts from what I can see.
