    FS: Custom Bugei Samurai Katana

    Just finished doing a Bugei Samurai Katana.
    11 inch tsuka / 27.5 inch nagasa, very deep sori.
    This appears to be one of the first generations of this sword, original owner said it was purchased 10+ years ago. Blade does not appear to be used for cutting at all and is in near perfect condition. There is NO frosty hamon on this one, but the hamon is very prominent none the less with beautiful hada. Saya has some small hairline cracks in the lacquer only near the koiguchi.
    I wanted this to look more "antique" so I left the small cracks in the lacquer as well as purposely having a small gap in the seam for samegawa, but make no mistake, this is a serious martial arts sword intended for cutting, that's why I chose to use a full wrap to begin with.
    Tsuka was reshaped and I applied a full wrap of No.2 samegawa from Namikawa which was then antiqued. Made to look more like an antique or "Nihonto," the seam for the samegawa was left with a gap to mimic the effects of age.
    New brown silk ito, and new Nobori menuki were used in place of the originals. A solid brown Kyoto Sanada Himo Sageo replaces the original as well. All new hand made hishi-gami were used as well; I get asked that all the time for some reason lol

    Price is $1200 shipped CONUS.
    That's over a hundred dollars off the price of a new one with immediate shipping and you're getting a custom piece reinforced for the rigors of cutting.
    Did i mention that it looks truly amazing?
