    FS: Dynasty Forge Daimyo 1095 Katana with Fred Lohman Tsuba (UK/EU/USA)

    Funds are tight, so I am selling one of my favourite shinken to fund other things in life (like training )

    This is the 29.5" Wave-theme Daimyo 1095 Hand forged & Hand polished line
    Online RRP $1080

    The blade is light and handles well in spite of its length, and a beauty to behold - I will be sorry to see it go. Crisp yokote & general geometry. Fittings are pleasantly understated with a slight patina. Tsuba, Tsuka-maki etc are all tight, about as good as can be had on production swords. Steel has a natural hada grain of sorts. In my opinion Dynasty Forge and its like produce some of the best recreations of "Nihonto" to be found at production level, and I've found them ideal for Iaido etc.

    I have the replaced the copper seppa with brass and the original tsuba with one by Fred Lohman, which depicts the death of Atsumori on the beach in the Heike-monogatari (http://www.japanese-swords.com/tsuba...amurai-fan.jpg) The original tsuba is still available if preferred.

    The blade has never been cut with and is essentially unused. However due to a careless shipping company there is a slight ding in the edge towards the kissaki. As you can see below, it does not remotely exceed the hamon and could be corrected by a polisher if wished or accepted as a battle scar in an excellent blade for Iai & Tameshigiri.

    Dynasty Forge ask 1080$ US, Fred Lohman Tsuba start at 95$ US, plus shipping & import duties...

    I am looking for half price - £400 - shipped in the UK/EU. I will ship to the US if desired. If you have an offer to make, please send me a PM.

    All the best,

    Jon
