OMG! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY'RE SELLING THAT! i've always wanted me a masamune! i'd sharpen that baby up and have it ready to kill!!! wow, thats insane.. massive sword... now they just need sanosuke's sword... hahaha, now that would just be ridiculous
I saw it at animecastle first, and it's about $25 cheaper, BUT, it's a red one, and the guard isn't the same =/ I e-mailed them tonight to see if they will get in a black one like that because I want one as close to in the movie as possible. I saw a dude commenting on it though and he had a lot of complaints lol. He said the handle is actually blue, and theres no 'hamon' which is the wave pattern in the blade, and apparently the way it's sharpened is beveled like a knife which it shouldn't be.
They do have kadaj's double sword though
If animecastle doesn't plan on getting in the black one with the more accurate guard, I guess I'll have to splurge on getting that one there.
Once again sorry for completely derailing your discussion here, but like I said, from the fact you had the rouroni kenshin reversed blade, I figured it was something you'd find interesting like myself. I just found it tonight and couldn't believe it.
I bet it'd be expensive as crap to have that professionally sharpened. I'd be too afraid to do it myself.
