Just got it in the post and I'm glad I got it now. Made by Japanese swordsmith Masahiro and is original. Now I can practise my battojutsu (unscheathing the blade and cutting in 1 motion) with a live blade instead of my practice blade or bokken. cheers Pics posted below.

Yup its the real thing. Can cut through things real easy if you use the right technique, using the full edge of the blade to cut. Bought it from a swordsmith in Japan and cost me 250 at discount as it has only been folded 8 times, and is the lowest price for a katana in that range. For a fully folded katana ( I still wanna get a better one) that is folded 20 times or more can cost like 1000 or more so I'm real happy. Maybe I'll get some photos of my sai, nunchuku and ninja throwing knives and post them too sometime. And yes as you can tell I'm a real martial arts nut, been training for around 15 years or more in lots of different styles. Razz

Ok so here's my set:



The bokken is top with training blade below it. My new blade is below that. My sai are to the right 2nd from bottom with my ninja blades beside them. At very bottom is my nunchaku.

A close up of my Nunchaku:



A close up of my sai:



and so you can see how big the blades are - another pic of my blades with my shoe (about 1 foot):



Sorry the images are so bad but I had to take the pics with my phone camera.

I had 2 google it Razz So u like anime too... I wanted to get a rurouni kenshin sakkabatou but I can't find one that fits the requirements (not a replica). If you dunno what I'm on about google it and then watch it here or just look for rurouni kenshin or samurai x on the web. Its the best anime I've come across and I downloaded all 4 seasons and the OVA's cos I love it so much. The Japanese version is much better but you gotta watch it subbed. The american version loses half the meaning in translation.
