Ah now I can see them. Well if indeed that sword does belong to you then there's a lot of people on here with egg on their face this evening.

Well,I'm sure as hell glad that I didn't post in this thread until now. :D

Nice 'looking' blade but WTF happened here? :S
I don't wanna p*ss on anybody's chips but seppa protruding the kazuka-ana on any koshirae is all wrong and in this case by waaaaaaay too much,I can state with certainty that the tsuba does not belong to this sword.

but his has a different tsuba. Only Quench can enlighten us on why the tsubas were changed or if he asked for it.

i ordered it in a wave theme. it' s bit unconfortable to choke up on the grip, as your hand touches the rough detailing, but never mind. i could always adjust the guard to fit more tightly. it's a bit heavy for iai at 1k but not too heavy. when the time comes i'm sure i will not notice the extra bulk. maybe put a masahiro guard on it, i don't see it being a problem though. the blade collar is a bit rough too, as someone said. tbh it is probably due to getting it shipped before the ban, but it came off the forge in Oct last year.

He's not exactly a regular like the rest of us so there's no reason for him to post about such an order in advance, especially if he wasn't 100% it would arrive in time. Bottom line is he told us all he had something, we all said he was full of sh*t, he proved us wrong and now we just gotta live with it. A lesson learnt me thinks ;)

I was shocked to see him displaying it on a masahiro stand, let alone the thought of putting one of their tsubas on it :|
