Almost akin to "but it has watertight compartments and electronic watertight doors - it's unsinkable!"

...maybe you're looking for a style of Choji similar to one in this link http://www.ksky.ne.jp/~sumie99/hamonpatterns.html but there are many styles and maybe hundreds of combinations because I believe that the word hamon derives from Ha (edge) and Mon (emblem) so each smith was putting his own mark on a blade really and together with the hada and sugata is the reason why many mumei (unsigned) swords can often be attributed to one particular school and even an individual smith if he's well renowned.



Yea according to that website the style of hamon I said looks like flames I is a choji, and the buffalo is the cedar type,?

Are these styles of Hamon not covered in that book you got at Christmas?

(Ive been thinking of grabbing a copy too and was just curious)

Thanks for the review. I'm looking at getting the preowned Buffalo or the Shinto Kat.
