This sword would be good at 75 as the only thing that you mainly fight are VT's so maximum damage isn't always the answer here. I love the delay of these faster swords. Obviously for HNM's and the like, maximum damage is the way to go but not necessary in a merit party environment or a campaign battle environment where faster attacking allows for greater TP gain for SAMs invaluable status weapon skills.

Well, Samonji was a famous sword smith from the Chikuzen Province. His father and grandfather were conservative smiths who were subjected to an old tradition of Kyushu smiths. Though, Samonji created a quite new and refined way of making swords with a certain influence from Masamune's swords.

Samonji makes smaller tanto like those by Yamashiro smiths. There is only one tachi-style sword made by Samonji with a signature, so-called "Kosetsu Samonji". Generally speaking, his swords were superior in quality than the old swords.

This sword later on passed the Tokugawa Family and was eventually obtained by the Guizhou house. It became a national treasure in 1932.

Kosetsu means Ancient Belief, i think.

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!

Got one of these from appraising a ??? Sword in Aht Urgan Whitegate with the Hume guy. I was told only Qiqrin could give ra/ex stuff, so that's a lie. P.S. this katana sucks ;;
