choosing the perfect katana?

Hi i am looking to buy a paul chen hanwei katana. Now they are out of my price range right now but i am going to start saving up. I am most likely going to go with one in the L6 bainite series. So i need to know which is the better one to buy. The ones i know are the praying mantis, paper crane, paper crane wakizashi, and oni katanas.

The main difference between the praying mantis and the oni is the blade geometry. There is no real performance difference between a blade with shobu zukuri or shinogi zukuri. The Oni has a pretty long tsuka, so if you have small hands then this might be a little too big. I've heard good things about the Oni and Praying Mantis, so they could be decent swords, though in that price range I generally like the MAS L6 blades (www.martialartswords.com) since they allow for customization so that you can get something that more adequately meets your needs. I tried out one of their early productions of the "Sun Flower", and it was a really fun sword. L6 is not an easy steel to work with, and if the heat treament is off then the sword is essentially junk...this is why I just went to Howard Clark for a custom L6 and didn't risk it with a production model.

The paper crane is made from tamehagne, not L6. Supposedly it is a good sword, but I have never used it. By comparison, a traditionally forged tamehagne blade takes up to about 2 weeks to produce start to finish, and costs generally $7000+ for the bare blade.
