    Newbie need advice

    Hi everybody
    Newbie say 'hi' to all members here.
    I went to Japan for summer holiday.When visited a store that selling high end katanas, i was 'hooked' by katana since then. At that time I was 'hipnotize' by patern on the blade and now I know it called 'hamon' and 'hada'.
    Iam ready to get my first katana and need advice from all members here. Since the katana will not use for cutting, so I dont care about balance, geometry, material, etc.The most important is the katana MUST have real and prominant hada and hamon, come from well know brand and not more then US$400.I dont mind to buy pre-own katana too as long in mint condition.Any advice and offer will highly appreciate.
    Sorry for my 'bad' English.
    Best rdgs

    Teo, now you know what you want your best course of action would be to post a WTB (want to buy) thread in the classifieds.

    Edit: I see you already did.

    I personally would buy new, never know what stress could have been placed on used ones that the user might not disclose. Either way the Budei is a pretty good looking blade, good luck in your search!
