SOLD Up for sale is a beautiful Japanese blade smithed by Shosui Takeda. In Japanese tradition, after Takeda forged the blade, he passed it along to a separate craftsman that built the handle. This was never used to cut anything but some paper to test the edge. It is scary sharp. $175.00 shipped CONUS. Paypal accepted, if you send it as a Personal Gift, so I don't get hit with fees.
