    1050 Mono Steel Katana by Anthony DiCristofano

    Hi there,

    I have a 1050 Katana made by Anthony DiCristofano and mounted/polished by Brandon Thell. The sword has just been completed by Brandon and is up for sale now.

    As far as I know that Anthony doesn’t work on mono steel blades any more and Brandon doesn’t take polishing commissions from public any more. It will make this kind of swords very hard to get now.

    Here are some specs for the blade:

    Blade length: 29 inches
    Motohaba: 33.5 mm
    Sakihaba: 25.5 mm
    Motokasane: 6mm
    Sakikasane: 4.7 mm
    Tsuka: 10.5 inches
    Chu kissaki

    I ordered the sword in July last year just before I started practicing Iaido. It’s 1 inch too short for me and there is no bo-hi. It’s not good for my kata practice. However I’ll use it for test cuttings if it doesn’t sell here. Please feel free to contact me with additional questions or details at

    I've just dropped the asking price to $5600; which includes shipping worldwide and PayPal fees.

    friendly bump

    Please, someone invest in this sword! For the asking price, it is well worth it. Very beautiful. Good luck with the sale. Wish I had the funds for this one. Cheers, Brian.

    Thanks Brian,

    I don't know with this asking price, why no one is making any solid offer.

    Thanks again!

    Hi guys,

    The sales didn't go through. The sword is back on the market for the last time before I remove it from the market.

    Thanks all!
