My Clay Tempered Saito Katana

i ordered a Saito Clay Tempered Katana after seeing it unboxed & demonstrated on internet.  i recieved mine and witnessed first hand the excellence in craftsmanship incl my engraving, protective ship packaging was excellent, and my read on informative website matched my Katana product perfectly.
In my near future i'll also be adding a matching Wakizashi and then later a Tanto. OHh! Yes, thank you. i'm very pleased with my purchase...
