We are currently working on an English translation for the Echizen Kinai Tsuba 1988 by Tsuruwaka. This will be done similarly as we did with the Choshu book and is being done by Markus Sessko. The last translation was done in super high quality and contained an incredible amount of information that has never been available in English. We expect the same thing from this translation. 

The Kinai group of fittings makers were prolific and there are a great many pieces in collections. If you have not seen the book before it contains an incredible amount of information on this group including kantei points on each generation as well as differences in their multiple families. Our target for this will be completed in February and cost $125. If you are interested in being part of the project send me a PM and reply here as well. 

 

 

For reference, here is the book on Grey's site - http://www.japaneses...-tsuba-tsuruoka

 

 

Thanks.

So you need to have the original book for the pics?

It is just the textual translation?

Sounds great...but just wanted to clarify

This is the translation for the book so you will need the original book as the photos can't be published.

Would this by any chance include the Akao group?  I'm thinking probably not, but...

Sorry Steve, the book focuses on Echizen Kinai not Akao.

I cannot commit right now, but hope to have funds available when it is released...so if by any chance there is one available I would definitely be interested. Sorry I can't be more "committed" but a lot depends on funds next year.

FYI several other people have emailed me to commit but we have much fewer than the last time when we did the Choshu book. Markus has already started the translation so please let me know if you would like to participate. Thanks for your help in this project.

FYI I heard from Markus today that this translation is done and he is now just cleaning up some formatting and images. If you haven't replied that you wanted to be a part of this translation or haven't Pm'ed me then please do so now. Really appreciate everyones help in offsetting the cost to have this great book translated by Markus Sesko.

Book downloaded, I will start to read it asap.

There are pictures too, so no back and forth from the printed edition.

 

Thanks to everybody!

I have an Echizen Kinai tsuba (dragon) and am looking forward to reading your translation of Tsuruoka's work.
