Think I'd prefer a Chen for the price though

Hmm yea maybe, but Chen katanas are common, that buffalo kat is rather unique, there's alot of people with the Chen kats, not many will have that, and it's laminated folded steel with a true hamon (without acid) may buy one but for 400 may save the extra and buy a top end piece, still undecided

Looks like a Kawashima to me but I could be wrong.

Chen have just sent over their latest price list, PPK's will be £260, the Golden Oriole, Shinto etc. £600, Tiger, Orchid etc £900, sure they're worth the money but it leaves a big gap in the mid range market for these kawashima quality swords which keep getting better and the Buffalo folded is a stunner.

That was where a search led me, not exactly the same koshirae but the blade specs are almost identical for Kawashima soshi kitae. ;)
