Just started Kendo and I bought my training swords but I also need a solid /reliable / low maintenance beater. I wanted a Hanwei Raptor Shinogi Zukuri (because 5160 TH and good rep) but it is now impossible to find one in the UK. In fact, it seems most UK stores are not importing katanas at the moment. I only found: 1. A couple of unsold Unokubi Raptors - but my dojo doesn't like the tip 2. A few Nanbokucho Zukuri Raptors - but in this case, I'm worried about the tip durability...looks fragile. 3. The only other 5160 TH I found are the Four Seasons Katanas from Dragon King. I'm thinking Spring Sakura, but honestly, ANYTHING would do at this point. 4. A couple of Ronin Dojo Pro 5. Cheness Kurome and Ayami 9260 differentially tempered (so says the description...I didn't know 9260 can be DH). 6. Cold Steel Warriors I know steel is less important than the forge. Spring Sakura is 5160TH and 27', which should be ok for me - I'm 1.80m (5'11"). Anyone has any experience with Dragon King? Any advice will be highly appreciated. MANY THANKS in advance!
