The Secretary of our local antique arms collectors Guild (Melbourne, Australia) forwarded a query to me from (I thought) a member about a Japanese knife and a (what looks like) a Shingunto. Well, we all know that its really hard to tell much from casual photos of swords, so I asked the enquirer where he lived so I might be able to visit and look at the sword in hand. Wait for it - he lives in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada!! How he found the Secretary of our little club here leaves me boggling... I guess googling.
The question: Is there any Canadian member who could "take over" and field the gentleman's questions???
