    My goodness that is a lot of dough for that Steel.

    For $1.3 million, does it come with your own Samurai warrior to wield them for you in battle?

    No, just a dictionary with ostentatious and pretentious missing. :scrutiny:

    No, wait! The potential buyers and Salter (and the Robb Report folks) already have that.:neener:

    Mine used to have pretentious in it, but I ripped that page out because I'm too good for that.

    Huh...only $1,299,200 more than what I shelled out for one I bought for a brother of mine earlier this year.

    Bugger! If I'd only known!

    Cute, but a little out of my price range.

    I can't believe I am sullying myself by belonging to a forum where ownership of this fine piece isn't mandatory. I suppose slumming it up a bit with you cheeky fellows can be my bit of charity for the month. :rolleyes:

    Wow, for that price I could buy 342 bainite L6 katana blades by ABS MS Howard Clark... or something like 40 fully mounted Rick Barrett custom katanas...

    That one actually looks cooler (and is probably a better blade), anyway.

    yeah but that one doesn't have a gram of gold leaf on the tsuba.
  17. Outlaw Man

    True, but with the money you save, you could buy about 30,000 grams of gold.

    Or a couple hundred gold-plated 1911s.

    I guess I shoulda added an emoticon for my feeble attempt at dry humor.

    I got it.

    BTW, I don't doubt the blade is excellent.

    It is the rest of the gaudy crap that knots my gut.

    Hso, that Edo blade is fantastic, though. I wonder if I can scrounge $33,000 from somewhere.

    If I recall correctly, Japan is actually kind of strict about historical blades leaving the country.
