    Posted over in Bladeforums but am posting here as well. Does anyone have any experience with products from Sato Sword Forge? I am looking for something with a clay hamon that is functional but primarily for display. Link here: https://www.satosword.com/

    So you want something that looks good and is moderately usable?

    Yes sir. If I could make a comparison with firearms, if I were to want to display a Colt SAA or early 1911 I would want one that was functional as opposed to a non firing replica. I'm also into hamon and see that as its own artistic quality and the swords and tanto at that company appear to have authentic hamon (except for the cheapest models whose hamon appears to be only cosmetic.)

    If it is principally for display, does the temper line need to be clayed or just visible?

    Have you looked at Sword Buyer's Guide yet? https://www.sword-buyers-guide.com/japanese-swords.html
