I have not been hunting the uniques yet, but I actually got Bashiok achievement yesterday. I believe only certain rakunishu swords actually work, it depends on during which patch you got the sword. I had three of them and only one gave me the achievement.
It bugs the heck out of me that Blizzard is not acknowledging those other achievement bugs!
