Hello,

I just wanted to know, if these scratches are really "Hachiman" or are these just scratches.

Thank you

Uwe G.

Not in the same category or the same quality, but would this one qualify for the Y of Yoshiro at least? Crumbs from the Yoshiro table? Or is it some other school or area?

This was just a more or less failed photographic experiment. I will get the tsuba again in my hands and then I hope I can make some more detailed photos.

Uwe. A friend was attending the sword conference in Miyagi over the weekend and seeing a Yoshiro tsuba there he asked the 'experts' around the table if Yoshiro were ever signed 'Hachiman'.

"Yes, they were."

"What would it mean?" he asked.

"Rather like Tenka Ichi. An expression of conviction as to being the best under the sun," the gentleman explained.
