the link here shows the sword i'm thinking about buying. is it worth it at all?

http://cgi.ebay.com/MASAHIRO-BATTLE-READ...1QQcmdZViewItem

I have been doing some research and found that there is a kissaki on this sword, and it is full tang (As shown in picture) and made of carbon steel (possibly 1065).There is also a Bohi and the Mune seems like its Maru. do you really think its worth a shot?

I wouldn't bother. Get an iaito instead. Not much more expensive and it'll be higher quality. Try tozando.com

You can see alot of imprefections along the blade in the close up pics,, that was casted not forged,, I agree go with a Iaito,,,, Try www.swordstore.com,, great products and quality Iai.

I agree with the previous post. There are a lot of imperfections. I use Paul Chen blades. He has a site with great blades at great prices. Check it out.
