    FOR SALE: Hanwei Bushido katana

    FOR SALE: Hanwei/Paul Chen Bushido Katana

    I'm selling my Bushido katana. I've had it for two years or so and, other than a little dry handling, I've only used it once. maybe twice - I forget.
    It's not a heavy or light sword, but somewhere in between. No hi. The bronze tsuba keeps it well weighted to the back.

    All in all this sword is in near perfect condition. The ito has darkened slightly from handling. I replaced the original sageo as it was a bit stiff and had some snags in it. Will include the original if desired. I also have a pure white japanese silk sageo if the buyer prefers.

    The new sageo is an ivory-gold colour which works pretty well.

    Taking these pics today really made me want to keep it, but I will probably never use it so I'd rather see someone put it to use.

    Asking $600 + shipping.

    And now for some pics:

    All pics taken today (February 20th, 2012)
    The sageo shows up as a rose-gold colour in these pics, which is kinda neat.
