I would like to fill the topic here with bidding orgies on the eGun Plattform. 

These sword pub up often and get a lot of bids.

Chris, they both look like reproductions to hang in the bar.  The excessive wild hada is one sign, but also they usually have cheaper tsuka ito of a different weave, plus the binding crossover  is usually all one way, and not alternate overlap.

Another disturbing feature of many of these fake swords is they seem to more often than not copy the " Hada Tatsu" style of Ji-hada .

Then, even when a legitimate mixed metal type Hada from the Meji or Showa era is presented to the NMB it almost immediately falls suspect as being a Chinese reproduction !  I personally find prominent  Itame/Mokume Hada's used for forging Nihonto to be quite attractive of all era's, only to be somewhat diminished by these pathetic modern fakes!!

And to be selling for how much...Seriously!!!

No i don't think so Dave. There is big difference. But Fake is Fake. 😉

Definitely agree Chris, to the trained eye, very big difference indeed ! It still however, annoys me to see these Fake attempts at true Nihonto hada...🤔

This crude and ugly fake sword has now 44 bids and 608 EUR (660 Dollar) with 8 days remain. 😂

 

I bet it goes for 900 or 1000 Dollar. Just crazy. This crab sells better than genuine pieces.
