My Bushido Daisho

Post by Big Lazy » Sat Apr 19, 2014 4:26 pm

Here it is in all its glory. Sadly the photo turned out a bit naff but you get the idea. All that need now is that engraved plaque to replace those tsubas and it will be complete.

The Kat Saya looks quite a bit darker than the Wak - is that just the lighting on the pic?

(Just curious as the color on mine is exactly the same)

On closer inspection under good light I would say the wak saya is oh so slightly lighter in shade, but not ass much as this pic would have you believe. Guess that's because the kat was made some 5 years previously and the Bushido was pretty much the only line that never changed. I wish it was still possible to get a Gen 1 MM and GO wak too. The updated versions are no where near as nice.
