Dear fellow Members,


the meeting in Bonn was well attended as always. And because of the Year of the rooster it was a special theme for kodogu.

The other theme was fittings from the Muromachi era.


For rooster there was a daisho tsuba pair from Ishiguro Masatsugu and some menuki.


And for Muromachi fittings: Ko Tosho and Tosho, Onin, Yoshiro, a pair of fuchi/kashira, etc.


And this time some very beautiful swords were on display:


#1  = Yamaura Kanetora, Kiyomaro-school, son of Saneo

#2 = Sekishu Sadatsuna

#3 = a signed tachi Ko-Bizen Chikakane, Tokubetso Juyo token in perfect condition.  There are only two signed blades existing.

#4 = Jitsua, Juyo token,  Son of Sairen and father of O-Sa

#5 = a wonderful utsushi of Yamatorige by Ono Yoshimitsu


It was a great meeting and I want to thank all the members who brought the swords and kodogu.

Ugh. Such low class horrid stuff.

I will gladly dispose of it, especially some of those tsuba examples. Send to me at:  _________


Seriously- some beautiful things. I wish I were there.

Talking of excellent stuff, look carefully at the niju habaki in Uwe's last photo.  The skill of making the habaki so that the bohi outline is continued in both pieces of the habaki is breathtakingly beautiful.  The simplicity of its appearance belies its beauty and the skill level to accomplish it.

It was a very nice meeting.  Especially the ko-Bizen Chikakane was amazing to me.  Unbelievable that a sword of that age can be so healthy ...  And the midare utsuri was very prominent, really spectacular.
