    What was the MSRP on the Butaniku? Any chance you know the weight on it?

    Turns out mine's so big REK wouldn't touch it.
    Anyone know of anyone who'll do this sort of work on a long Butaniku?

    Apparently it did. He said he done one once, but never again. Too many opportunities to mess up a blade that long, it seems.

    Great pics man! Glad you got it back and it's what you were looking for! :)

    Yeah I slipped once doing that long one and realized that it's too easy to screw up something that long, it's very difficult to hold it steady while moving it across your belt grinder. And on a $2k sword that's not something you want to mess up!
