I haven't seen this discussed yet, just thought I would pass this along.
I have been a collector of Japanese Sumari Swords for many years and the blades are the best metal for a knife you can find anywhere.
Look around for a damaged katana sword or Tanto that is damaged on the tip or somewhere close to the tip. Then shorten it by cutting (no heat). Reshape the tip.
I have one that was made over 175 years ago and I have never sharpened it but I can fillet a fish with it.
You can order Japanese water stones to shape and sharpen from places in Japan.
If the sword is damaged most of it's collector value is gone,except in very rare circumstances.
