Shobu Zukuri order received!!! Pics inside

Post by Chewie » Wed Dec 22, 2004 8:48 am

After waiting 8 months and paying 163€ more than planned because of customs I've finally received my Bugei Shobu Zukuri :wink:
It's very impressive!!!
Here are a few pics I've taken so far (there's also some pics of my Iaito) :

I haven't had the chance to use it yet, my next Battodo session will be around the end of January.
About the Shobu I find it to be a very massive and impressive sword, the o-kissaki is really gorgeous.
It can clearly be put in the "heavy weapon" category.

Very nice sword there, glad that you are happy.

:| That is gorgeous!

I have always wanted a Bugei Shobu, however it's always been a bit out of my range, maybe in the future!

Btw didn't you always get the impression that the willow-leaf blade (translation for Shobu Zukuri) has always looked like [blank]? Then again I suppose variations on the same theme were never uncommon.

Anyway Congrats! you surely have a superb blade! :D

Edit: No linking to other sites selling swords please.

Forum rules state no linking to other sites, and no leeching images from other sites. Saving the image and using a host such as http://www.imageshack.us is fine (as long as said image doesn't have the resellers URL all over it! :D )

there :D

So this is what blank means, what I first saw as a primitive Shobu Zukuri blade
