    This is my first katana. The hamon looks very beautiful once you see it on the real thing. You would immediately see perfection on it’s craftmanship once you hold it. The sword and the kogatana was so excited to meet me. Next day, I found out that they secretly bit me. I did not feel anything (very sharp). It was mentioned above that the kogatana’s blade is Semi sharpened ( no! Its’s not) but it bit me as well. I started to think that this is the initial process on how you could be one with the sword. I also enjoyed my 15 minute conversation with the Samurai..it was a very brief moment but we had discussed a lot. Thank you very much Geisha’s Blade.
