Maybe he hasn't got a camera? Not everyone does these days believe it or not. I'm learning towards him being full of sh*t too but I'll give anyone the benefit of the doubt till they start really taking the wee wee.

Well you'd be able to tell a genuine picture from one of those website shots, let's say he adds a note to one of his pictures, if they ever see the light of day.
Cattle die, and kinsmen die.
Thyself eke soon wilt die;
but fair fame will fade never,
I ween, for him who wins it.

I found the exact sword he is saying he has, it aint true tamahagane as its from china not japan

The Daimyo Tamahagane blades are made using high-carbon Tamahagane iron sand, the traditional ingredient of the true Japanese sword. This sets our swords apart, as it is very rare for blades to be made outside Japan with this material. By sourcing our Tamahagane from China, we can create a superior product at a fair price.

The iron sand, through a low-temperature smelting process, combines with carbon to form fairly crude high-carbon ore. The resulting material is broken into smaller pieces that are sorted by carbon content. As much as half of the extracted material contains insufficient carbon for sword-making.


$2,450 for a 29" blade, the hamon looks alright and the pattern on the blade is alright, but the fittings are pretty boring IMHO.

For that price, I'd want a less boring Hamon.
