    Question UK Shinken Katana

    Hello

    I am looking for a Shinken katana for tameshigiri in the UK. Being on a very low budget at present I would be looking for a price range of about probably maximum £400 let's say...

    I was thinking of ordering one of the custom blades by SBG, however I found this website of a dealer in the UK which makes it easier and perhaps even better -depending on quality of the blades: http://www.katanamart.co.uk/64-buy-s...words-for-sale

    Does anyone have experience with these blades? I understand the "superior" range would be the ones to choose from when buying from this website

    I am basically looking for an authentic as possible sword especially regarding metal and type of hardening used, weight, sori (I like a slightly deeper sori) and of course the design and it being practical for tameshigiri.

    Any other UK recommendations are very much appreciated

    Thanks very much

    Rens

    It seems actually that the SBG sword buyers guide custom katana are currently not taking orders as they are catching up on their production of earlier batches..

    Anyways I am just interested in the quality, look and feel of the swords mentioned and wondered if anyone owns one such blade of either seller.

    And of course any information on good tameshigiri sales in the UK for a small budget or option to pay it off over longer timespan perhaps

    Thank you

    Rens
