We had a fine slim Oei Bizen Yasumitsu wakizashi (sun-nobi tanto?) at the NBTHK local meeting yesterday. Lots of utsuri, but seriously togiberi.

Yes, worn thin/slim from too many polishes.
2 verbs, Togu/togi plus Heru (grow fewer or lesser) heri/beri, ‘togiberi’ is a bandied-about word here.

The sword is sold to a dear NMB friend and will leave France tomorrow for its new home.

I am very glad to see it gone to such a good home.

The sword has arrived safely in it's new home. As has often been said before dealing with Jean is always a great pleasure and any transaction simple, trouble free and smooth. 

Having had a short time to look at the blade I think it is a great testament to Jean's scholarship and understanding that he he was able to identify this sword for the very rare example it is and add it to his gokaden collection. I am sure the current custodian will gain equal enjoyment from it for many years to come.

Glad to see that the Yasumitsu has gone to a good home. Having bought the Mino example for myself, I can only second Paul's comments above. The Soshu and Yamato examples also went to good friends. Hopefully this Gokaden collection can be brought together at a gathering sometime in the future.

 

Best regards,

Ray
