    What you really need is a 28.5/11 shobu. That would really make you happy. I just so happen to have one.

    If Bugei offered a folded Shobu, I would've bought one in an instance! But they don't althought me and more people like me suggested it in the past.
    Sadly, hope that Sensei James Williams will someday offer a folded Shobu for the same of traditionalist who can't name unfolded sword "katana".

    I had Dynasty Forge high-end Shobu in the past, could say that regarding the blade it is very, very nicely manufactured! Only the fittings seem blunt, customization is a must IMO.

    Yulian,

    For production swords, I would go for non folded metal. The Bugei Bamboo is "the" exception to this rule of mine.
    Folding modern steel adds zero to it's strength. It increases the chances to flaws and it doesnt look like hada at all.

    Just me two cents.

    any interest in a 28/11 bamboo mat with the special process edge? it needs some assistance as a previous owner took a v sharpener to it. i started some reformation of the edge, but it needs more work......
    I like swords.
