That's beautiful!! Can you share some details?
Sorry, was interrupted and had to shut down. An identical sword by the same maker was used in a fight scene in The Immortal. If you want info on the Katana check out www.bytheswordinc.com/p-678-rosewood-tachi-450-samarai-sword-by-marto-m450.aspx

Very nice swords. I have been wanting a authentic Japanese sword. I wand one done in the old style folded. I am not sure of the lingo but I love the way they made them. My brother knows way more on this subject then I do. He even knows a the famous names of makers.

If you are thinking of buying a sword you should spend some time at this web site: http://www.sword-buyers-guide.com/authentic-samurai-sword.html

It really depends on what you want the sword for. For some only an antique made by a master will do. For others cutting rolled mats is the goal and modern steels are probably best. If you want the look of a folded blade the Musashi swords are a real bargain......doc
