Katana purchase 2009/9/26 15:29
I've been practicing Kendo for about two years (with Bamboo) and wanted to move onto practice with a katana. The one I plan on getting costs $200 and these are the specifications.

Overall Length: 110cm
Blade length: 70cm
Tsuka (handle) length: 30cm
Blade material: 1095 High Carbon Steel
Blade treatment: Hand Forged, Through Hardened, oil quenched, Hand Polished.
Blade Hardiness :50-55 HRC
Blade type: Fully Hand Sharpened
Tsuba: Roojin Tsuba.
Tsuka(Handle): White Rayskin wrapped with Red Japanese cotton Ito with Menuki (ornament).
Tang: Full tang with two Mekugi.
Saya: Red lacquered solid wood.
Sageo: Red Japanese cotton.

I've done some research on this subject but wanted an expert opinion.
It's alos a live blade but I don't plan on cutting anything, just movement practice.
