Can't find anything on it form the other sites I frequent.

Looks like a workhorse anyways, and the tsuka wrap looks suede.

I've held it :), infact i took those photos.

A very very nice sword. Probably my fav of the mid range (since gen 2 replaced gen 1). Same quality as the rest of the mid-range. Pretty meaty blade, stunning hamon.

Have no idea at all how it cuts though.
