Hey there Blade Master,

I noticed this one straight away as well and am very tempted to get it. Now I've got 4 blades I'm after, decisions decisions >.<
Is it indeed folded steel? I couldn't really tell from the picture but if it is then even better.
How prominent is the hamon by the way, I remember the BUK katanas from before were suposed to be a little fainter than normal.

Number 6 is very tempting as well :D

hi kalith
it is indeed forged steel the sword is based on a sea theme the tsuba is two lobsters facing each other the menuki are based on two sea dragons
real same on the tsuka the harmon is a little on the faint side the but hold the blade against the light and it will show itself quite clearly the blade has a slight satiny look to it but realy doese look nice, of the first six blades on show this is the one to go for take a real close look at the saya and you will see it has real ray skin on the first 8 inches from the koiguichi down over now that you only get on saya,s where the swords cost a hell of a lot more left click on the pic to get a bigger pic and you will see what i mean, no 6 was my second choice followed by 4 i see loz has a new hideoshi on show now as well, no7 the old one had brown rap this one has blue go for the one i have i.e. no3 you,ll not regret it i think he only had ten, now he only has nine so be quick :D
regards mick
ps loz has now put up his own discriptions and check out the three new additions since this reveue

Hey be sure to post some slick pics of that thing when you can! I'm mulling over picking it up (number 3 I mean) but I'd looooove to see some better pics first. I mean really love... The kind of love you feel when you have that first sip of lager after a long day. Those deep spiritual moments :D

i,ll do what i can cool but the camera i have is abslute crap at taking
closeups the closeups loz has done are better than anything i can do at the moment
but take it from me the blade alone is an work of art as i said to kalith well worth the money
note the harmon looks as though its been done twice i.e. looks like a double harmon thats not a fault thats the way its been made
just a unusual harmon is all take a close look at loze,s pic and you,ll see what i mean.
regards mick :D
