Someone talk me down from the ledge

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I saw this blade from daimyou54eb and really liked the hamon, so I made a random offer on it ($1200) and he accepted. Upon closer inspection, it seems like the blade is definitely on the tired side - but I'm still really considering it. Does anyone have a different opinion?

I won't get too far into the blade itself because I am not an expert. But the fact alone that he took $700 off of a $1900 asking price should speak volumes alone. He isn't doing it for charity and I doubt he's hurting that much for cash.

The polish is not good, I don't see tiredness but I also don't see the cracks and hakobore he mentions. Theres no papers, just a registration card. Walk away, save your money, stop looking at ebay...
