I still have it.
Obata Sensei has owned and owns swords of the highest caliber. True Nihonto treasures. But when visiting Sensei's house he always showed us his Hartsfield blade and told us it was the sharpest sword he ever held or used. It was the only sword I ever heard Sensei describe as "Scary Sharp" and I was always impressed.
Rest in Peace, Phill.

I read an article on one of his kaiken with black cotton and epoxy handles, in a 1986 custom knife special of GUNG HO
Now I still make cord wrapped and epoxy impreganted handles.
I use A2 a lot, he was a real inspiration
