it was one of a set of three specials i got from lawrence a couple of years or so ago
well before this stupid sword ban there was the elite fuji blood red ito and black same
black saya with red claw marks well you see the pic the other two one has a black saya
the other had a brown one all handles were the same lenght the brown saya one had brown ito
the black saya one has black ito and white same if i ever find pics of the other two i,ll post here
now i belive these are still available but weather we can still get them in the uk i dont know
as ive said blame this stupid government of ours
mick

ok guys
ive found the other two heres the masahiro musashi elite katana

Image

the third one is the masahiro elite kenshin katana

Image

apart from cosmetic differences i.e colours ito and tsuba,s these katanas are very much alike

I owned a Masahiro Fuji once upon a time, bought it from Swords of Might. Do quite like the colour scheme.

Ha! My sig evolved on SBG, mate. If you'll notice it's now a clever play on the Spice Litany from Dune.

But I still do requests, I can add the Python if you like. :D
