Enjoy some of the photos of Japanese Shinken that our clients have gotten from some of Japan's best Smiths!  Much more goes into commissioning a blade.  The quality of the polish, the fit of the habaki and the choice of koshirae (furniture) must come together correctly too!  Besides trust, knowledge is key!  By example the photos that show carvings in the blade (horimono) really should be reserved for thicker blades of exceptional quality.
