Higo katana

by Jim

QUESTION: Hey paul. I know that cheness's katana's are well known and I was wondering, is there ever going to be a comeback of the Higo katana? I've checked the website and it says that it has been discontinued for a while. Even though it says it discontinued, aren't they going to make a comeback of something similar to it? Please update me on this. Thanks


ANSWER:Hi Jim,

As far as a I know - no... There were problems producing the final batch that started to make it extremely cost prohibitive, as lamination like this is a very time consuming technique.

A real shame, as these were really beautiful swords... :-(

- Paul
