The Hunter Katana is built on the Hanwei L6/Bainite blade n the Shonogi Zukuri style, and featuring superb koshirae, the Hunter is a very desirable and functional piece. The subdued green silk ito and green striped lacquered saya with green silk sageo compliment the blackened tsuba with golden accents, featuring a raptor stalking his next prey.

Quality PriceStuartI purchased this sword for display purposes and, by that regard, it is very nice indeed. The hamon is both visible and striking with a very nice polish to the rest of the blade. Build feels solid, and all parts fit well except the scabbard which rattled quite badly and had to be shimmed with a thin piece of wood (included).
Some other quality issues include cracking to the lacquer of the scabbard, and a curious chip / dent on the back side of the blade. Nothing major, but rather disappointing at this price point.
