Opinion on this wakizashi?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to this hobby and don't have heaps to spend, I was wondering what you guys thought of this wakizashi for sale on eBay Link 


There appears to be a crack near the tang, is this fatal do you think? 

Thanks for any help

These pictures are impossible to view. See about picking a few select ones so we can see them individually?


I did look at the link though... and the crack is pretty ugly. I would avoid this one on just that alone. But there's also a number of pockmarks on the blade too.


My advice? Talk to some of the dealers here: you'll get a nice deal and be FAR less likely to get burned with an inferior quality blade. It might cost you more, but you'll end up with something worth the money that you'll feel good about. My first stop for a good beginner's blade would be Ed @Yakiba
