    Actually, that crane design has been around a very long time. I remember seeing an antique tsuba that was very similar at the Walters Gallery in Baltimore a while back.

    I honestly doubt that particular crane katana is even worth 100 dollars. Look at the ito in one of the left pictures, its awful.

    What are you guys talking about...that tsukamaki is AWESOME!!!

    For a guy with a broken left hand and arthritis in the right hand...
    - What really scares the heck out of me is that stupid people are out-breeding the smart ones.

    My questions are:

    1. WHY would they post such an horrendous pic of the tsuka?

    2. Who in their right mind would by such a thing?
