Mr Bowen has done a considerable amount of work for the research of Gendaito over the years, there is no need to call him petty names. This is a really great sword, why there is so much discussion on the condition of the Nakago as opposed to the blade is baffling.

It is what it is.

40+ post on it slept hour or so 60+ post, didn't care to read anymore troll's wanting to impress somebody Chris? I don't know so i deleted it. Its a fine sword indeed. Now if i could get it to grow a inch.

Ol mates down under Bazza? Or King Trotter ?

Schooled me on shorter blades so im learning my lesson. Or trying too.

G'day Stephen,

I have a mumei shinshinto katana with what looks like similar hada and hamon. I have always thought I would love to find a gunto with a beautiful blade like that and guess what, you have beaten me to it! Look forward to some more photos of the blade.
