I can attest to the superior quality of Crane Mountain's weapons; they have no equal, even Shureido doesn't beat them! I have been doing buisiness with CM for about two years, and have had many great weapons custom made. If you are looking for Eiku specifically, then CM is the right place. Eiku are their specialty; each one signed and numbered. I own one made from black walnut, and it is gorgeous. I highly recommend Crane Mountain!
