Firstly I just want to thank you for the great
service and continuous advice that you've given me. This was my first katana and your suggestions were invaluable.
Also thanks a lot for you patience and your prompt replies to my 500 questions!
So, I have received my katana a few days ago and I have to say it is just STUNNING!
I just can't keep my eyes off it!
opted for a dark blue ito which matches perfectly with the brass finish of my musashi tsuba and dragon menuki. The ito is
very tightly wrapped around the tsuka which makes the handling very good.
I also chose to add the ray skin on the saya as well and the final result is beautiful. It also helps the
black saya to blend nicely with the dark blue ito.
the blade I opted for the bo-hi version to improve my cutting movements since it helps with the sound and it also reduces
the weight a bit. I chose the 1095 folded clay hardened blade with the real hamon and the construction is excellent. The hamon
is really nicely done and looking closely you can see the folds on the blade.
Overall the katana is very well balanced, everything fits well together and looks
I thoroughly recommend you
for this excellent service that you provided and a stunning katana for a great price.
