    Just curious.

    Back in 1986 I was given a samurai sword as a downpayment for a "business agreement".

    The man said the sword was worth $20,000, but...

    anyway, it has an extra curve on the top of the blade that "he said" was a deflection tool.

    anyone have a clue?

    I would get in touch with Professor Carl Friday of UGA. Maybe send him a pic of it so he would have a better idea of what you mean by extra curve.
