hi there all ,
short intoduction :
I'm a 44 year young men , leaving in belgium , close to antwerp.
My basic education was " metal " , not the music :-)
I'm self employed , have 3 nice sons and married for about 20 years , with my lovely wife .....who has nothing with weapons , whatsowever......
My post(s) will be simply and with a lot of misspellings , i never learned to write ore talk english.
so , sorry about that
things can go fast .........after reading a few days this forum i made a major decision.............i stopt dreaming ( after 30 years )......and did what i had to do.
I just bought my first nihonto.
most people here will now which one
30 years ago i saw a katana replica ( for about 50 euro ) , that was my budget for a month or 3 , beiing 14 years old .
That was a hard one , but i did it !
Now , 30 years later it was getting to strong ..........it was time for the real thing.
Because i'm a layman , i could only do this one base off trust.
After a few weeks study , i noticed , it will take years to learn all about it.
So i contacted a kind french person who had a katana for sale on this forum.
That went verry smouth and friendly and easy .
Aftyer a few days it was time to inform my wife , with my plans.....
"now way" she said ..........next day she gave me a "go"
And no , i'm not gonna tell the secret.
I had really a great contact with te seller , he was honest ,and cooperative.
So i transfered some money and a few days later , my dream became reality.
The seller did a great job with packing the package .....and back support.
So , now i have the sword with me , the study can start , with a nice example in my hands ( the opposite , compared with others )
I now , that was a risk , untill i met Florian .
I think i got a good, honest deal !
Florian tould me , the sword is even better in hands , as on pictures >>>>>> hi was right !
Good to now there are still some reliable persons on this planet .
this post took my about 45 min. so dont ask for pics .......you can see the sword in the " sale " topic ...... people who follow this forum a bit , will now now which katana we are talking about.
I also hope to here some belgium members ( possible PM )
So , that's about is , have a nice weekend and its was good to get to know you all :-))))
Greetings from Belgium ,
