Dear NMB Members:
I am looking for an oshigata out of a book I used own. I can no longer find my copy of an oshigata from that book. I believe it may have been in one of the volumes of the TOKEN MEIJI TAIKAN GENTAKI TSUCHIYA OSHIGATA, but I am not completely sure. I only had the one volume. I am hoping someone can help me locate the oshigata. It is of a tachi signed "Nakahara Kunimune." The date was over the top of the mei. both on the same side of the tang, and the nakago has two mekugi-ana. There was also a diagonal line in the nakago running across the tang, between the two mekugi-ana, from about 9:00 o'clock to about 3:00 o'clock.
If any members have the TOKEN MEIJI TAIKAN GENTAKI TSUCHIYA OSHIGATA set, and it contains this oshigata, it would be greatly appreciated if you could email me a copy of the oshigata to firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you know of any other single volume taikans or oshigata books by the Tsuchiya polishers that you think might be a good bet for finding this oshigata, any leads are would really help.
