Hi all,

Mr. Hoppen told me that he is going to sell almost every sword on his site. If some member is falling in love with one of the swords please contact Mr. Hoppen to discuss selling issues.

I am glad his website came back online. For a few months he was offline and he has built a truly remarkable collection with Juyo rated examples of the major schools.

Has anybody ever bought a sword from him and can vouch?  How does it work when there is $20K (or whatever) at stake traveling Germany?

From memory, some of his swords will be exhibited at the Samurai Arts Expo in Utrecht on 15-17 June.

Totally agree. The Ichimonji is a great katana.
