  1. Hi Keith, hopefully I'm not bothering you too much, asking about an old topic. I know you do QC for Bugei, and did an initial review of the "Old Pine" sword. Do you recall what the niku was like on that blade, compared to their other models? I know the Dragonfly is their thinest and lightest model, and the Samurai is their thickest and heaviest blade. Where does the Old Pine compare? Also, are the Bugei swords a full samegawa wrap, or panels? I've always assumed they were full wrap for the quality and price, but have honestly never heard or read anything saying either way.
    Thank you, Gyan
