I have a dream. I'm in a dark cavern watching a man that is placing a sword into a furnace. Then he beat it on the hanvil. Then he cools it down into water. I realize the smith is life, the fire, the anvil and the water are the ordeal she put on us. And the sword is me. THe harder the life beats me, the harder I become.

New to NMB. Novice collector, own 2 Nihonto so far, wakizashi by Bizen smith Sukesada c1580-1650 and a mumei late Edo/Shinshinto wakizashi. Would love to one day own a tachi, any pre Showa type.

    I loved "Way of the Peaceful Warrior"!
    Ah, the 80's.

    I'm still searching for a cassette that was called "Positively change your Life" (for Men )
    Some subliminal "stuff" but I loved the melody that it played.

As far as history goes, yes, it is true, things that have value usually get "faked" and things that usually do not, don't.
