    Rick Barrett katana

    I'm selling a katana made by Rick Barrett.

    Nagasa (length of cutting edge) is 72,4 cm. Weight without saya is 1320g. Blade steel is 1075 carbon steel (is the best for swords: not too soft, not too hard). The sword was never used.
    Mounts were done by Brandon Thell and Patrick Hastings.

    Rick Barrett swords are known for their high quality, beautiful esthetics, and tremendous cutting ability (see for example https://youtu.be/Gi1K7B7Wrj8). I bought it for 4200 USD.

    The sword is in pristine condition, it was never used (because too heavy for me). On a small part of the saya, the lacker is peeled off a little bit, see pics. This is not due too handling of the saya, but rather it is a delamination due to thermal expansion differences between the lacker and the wood. Because of that cosmetic imperfection, I'm selling the sword at a big discount: 3200 Euros ( I bought it for 4200 USD). More info can be obtained on request.
