The new shinken. T10 steel, layer-forged and differentially clay-tempered. 28" blade. Sharp. Best part is the price, $200. Lots of decent blades coming from Chinese forges over eBay. There was a time I would have paid ten times for this. great-katana



Check out the beautiful hamon. It's a real temper line (fake ones are wire-brushed or acid-etched). You can also tell it's the real deal due to the lack of the thin edge bevel commonly found on inferior blades.

Similar product and price here: https://sbg-sword-store.sword-....com/product569.html

I’m interested in the O-Katana - 33” blade should better fit my 38” arms...

Here you go. I think you can bid down at $200.

Looks like a good deal and it sounds like you know what to look for.

My trouble with the stuff that comes out of China is you have no way of know what it really is. There's plenty of documented cases of mislabeled steel coming out of there.

My two katanas from them cut tatami just fine. I haven't tried my wak yet.
