Steve,

 

You can read more about the different ways of rating swordsmiths here.

 

I personally don't pay too much attention to "1 million vs 2 million" comparisons, the value is not absolute: you'll see that some swordsmiths are rated high by someone and low by someone else. Of course it's better if your sword is signed by a highly rated smith but that's a plus, the sword should be considered on its own merits first.

Thanks good to know what I’m trying to figure out you said by its own merit that leaves the door open I had a sword polish by Woodrow hall that was 5th seat and after polish it said to be better than averages

 the hamon showed or the way I interpreted as better after polish?

as quoted he had more skill

dose that mean judged by its own merit?

So can it be as good as a one million yen 

How can you judge one from another?

or can a 3rd seat be as good as ist?

The smith had to make many swords so how can they be all the same

And that smith probably had others sign for him !
