Cheers peeps. Next on my wish list is the Chen Oni katana, but that wont be till next year at the earliest. Someone recently asked me why I brought the Tiger Elite over the Kami as that was long regarded as the ultimate Chen kat. I guess really its due to the Kami being way too flashy. I wanted something that didn't scream out for attention yet is still a superior blade.

Tough question. Sharpest by far is the GO, that thing is like a razor. I guess I've gotta go with the Bushido as my fav.

I was gonna but a W&T once but was told its not the sharpest of the Chen range so decided against it. It does look one nice bit of kit though.

Nice video of the Oni here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txf0N15jbAI
