Hello all,

 

When commissioning a new tsuka, having a new tsuba etc fitted to a blade and the like, or having a new saya or shirasaya made, generally who have you all found to have good service and be reliable? 

 

Say if in the future I find a themed set I like for a blade I possess that either doesn't have fittings or has sub-par fittings, where are some honest places I could go to have the set fitted etc?

 

It's not something I'm doing now, but I want to know where to look in the future if I do wish it done.

Mike Yamasaki can certainly help with a project like this.

Strongly recommend John Tirado for the types of work you have outlined. John is the only individual I have used stateside for such work over the past 20 years and I have never been disappointed.

I second Ray's comments. I've never had John do any work for me, but have seen numerous examples and he does great work.
