Good luck..... Personally with a price so close to the Bushido I'd go with the folded blade but its up to you. Enjoy!

Good luck mate, hope you like it. Always liked the Tsunami, aren't they calling it something different now though, the Great Wave or something? Just noticed it when I was looking at the CAS official website. Isn't it £119 difference or something from Blades? Weird cos for me that's quite a difference, odd how people view money differently.

Update:-

Just recieved my Tsunami in the mail. I think I made a wise decision: she's very nice indeed :D.

I've yet to wipe off the gunky protective oil that's pre-applied to production blades, so I can't give my humble opinions on the blade appearance, but I must say I like the 'antiqued' look of the koshirae (sp?), something that I haven't sen before on my other PC katanas. The sword has a nice weight & balance... what can I say, I'm thrilled ;).

Unfortunatley I don't have a digi camera to show her off, but I assume most of you know what it looks like anyway.

Cheers.
