Yes, another of my swords is for sale...
This is the discontinued TH 'Wheel Katana' Model made by RoninKatana. You can see it ---here---, on his site.
The saya has a few dings here and there, but nothing too major.
The blade is VERY sharp and has no damage whatsoever excepting a tiny nick on the kissaki that is almost to small to notice.
I got this sword from former SBG forum member Ken for $100+shipping in the same condition it is in now, but with no sageo, and a very loose ito wrap.
Since then I have added a nice black sageo, rewrapped the tsuka in a katate-maki with alternating ito in the hineri maki sections which is MUCH tighter than it used to be, albeit showing some wood (though less than before the rewrap ), and added those metal decorative things that go on the sides of the kurikata, whatever they're called.
I am also willing to rewrap the tsuka for free in either hineri maki, or again, but better in katate maki if the buyer will supply the ito.
All of this taken into account, I am asking only what I paid for this for this superb blade before my upgrades, $100 + shipping.
This exact sword was reviewed by its previous owner here-
Please feel free to PM me with any questions! ;D
Pictures available upon request.
Thanks for looking!
