Ages ago I lugged a Pelican case of hocho back to Canada.
Every now and then someone finds the old link on my website and asks me if they are for sale. I gave most of them away 12 years ago. Anyway, this is Tsunahiro’s sword shop in Kamakura where I got them. He was not online back then but he is now.
I can vouch for the hocho as being very nice and as long as you treat them like a sword (keep them clean, keep them oiled), they are a real treat.
His lineage goes back to Masamune.
