WW2 GENDAITO KATANA MORINOBU 1942 + FULL SHINGUNTO MOUNTS TYPE 98 Japanese Sword

What I can say is that of the decades I have known Eric, seen and spoken with him at shows and seen his swords I have not heard that he has polished him own blades. Everything I have seen of his was in professional polish, new or old restoration. I have a bit of skepticism if that is what has been said (polishing his own swords), but just going off personal experience.

 

Best regards,

Ray

The sword is described accurately, at least based on what can be seen in the photos. Good gendai smith from the Kongobyoe lineage.

If you bought from Eric, there will be no bad surprises. It will be as described, healthy and a decent piece.
You probably won't get a steal of a purchase, but it will be real and decent, and good value for money. He doesn't mess around with junk. You won't be sorry.

I think it’s a person’s preference but I also think its important how it’s made

Ok what’s the difference between a lower grade versus a high should have the same amount  of folds or layers

what determines it 

the cutting ability strength anistitic characteristics how it looks? I guess in order  to tell the difference from an experts opinion

I have a lot to learn being a newbie

Steve when you have it in hand watch the blade in a good light from different angles. You will see so much exciting things on your Morinobu.

The pictures on the ebay offer didn't show the beauty of the sword.
