While cleaning some of my swords today, i noticed what i think are 2 or 3 Kanji on the inside of the Habaki.
I have never noticed this before, the Habaki is solid silver and belongs to a signed Shin Shinto sword.
I have 2 questions that some of you knowledgeable members may be able to answer.
Firstly does anyone else think they are Kanji.
Secondly if they are Kanji, is it unusual to find them on the inside of the Habaki.
Any comments would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
