    For sale I have this new, unused Ontario Black Wind Katana, model BWS-1. Made in the good ol USA. I know I'm probably going to regret selling this but I can't justify two of these. This is a battle ready sword that is very well made of 3/16" thick 1095 carbon steel. They haven't made these for nearly 20 years so finding a new on is next to impossible. I love the size and weight of these. $220 shipped in the USA, Paypal 'gift'. Please pm or email me with offers. Here are the specs:

    SPECIFICATIONS

    Blade Length: 20 inches
    Handle Length: 10 inches
    Thickness: 3/16"
    Weight w/o Sheath: Approx.1.9 pounds
    Sheath: Kydex with multiple attachment options
    Balance Point: 4 inches in front of cross guard
    Blade material: 1095 Carbon Steel
    Handle: Paracord wrap, double layer. Solid grip with a very tight wrap. Two holes drilled in the tang would make it a simple matter to affix a custom handle if anyone chose to do so.
