This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


This is a katana made by Howard Clark, polished by John DeMesa, with custom fittings by Patrick Hastings, and assembled by the guys at Liveblade. This is your chance to get a HC katana, without the wait, and priced before he made the $1000 mark up on his blades. I love this sword, but I need funds for other projects.

I am asking $4550 for this sword. I have taken $35 off of the price that I originally paid for it. This is what I payed for everything:

$3200 for the blade and polish
$540 for the fittings (fuchi, koshira, menuki, seppa, tsuba, koiguchi, kojiri, shitadome)
$845 for the tsuka and saya

Subtract $35 from above, and you get your total: $4550. I will cover the shipping, and I will also throw in a sturdy oak sword stand from Bugei, worth $40. You can pay me by money order or Paypal.

The blade is 1086M (mono-steel), and has never been used for cutting. The fittings are darkened forged steel w/ silver habaki, seppa and shitadome.

The nagasa is 27, but from tsuba to tip, it is just under 28. Its a stout blade, at a little over .25 thick at the mune-machi. The tsuka is 10.75, has two mekugi pins, and gyaku-menuki (under the palms). This sword has a very solid feel, with powerful blade presence.

If you have any questions or want to see more pictures, just let me know.
