Going back to the original poster's comments, if you want a sword with a live blade for iaido practice, that's cool. But just realize that this is not a shinken in the traditional sense. Also, if you want to do tameshigiri, you don't necessarily need a bona fide shinken. You just have to make sure it's made well enough to withstand tameshigiri. And if you DO get a bona fide shinken for tameshigiri, whether it has a bohi or not is irrelevant.
