This is a book published by Kyoto National Museum 2018. I just bought it and still 3 more available if anyone interested. It might written in Japanese language so its more suitable for those who have basic metallurgy knowledge as all it need is the pictures of 200 swords of Japan National Treasure.

So we can use the Hada, Hamon etc pictures as point of references in choosing sword. I got it from ebay

Ken,, there is a list of plates and introduction in English inside the book; no total translation I am aware of.

Thanks, Grey - pretty much what I expected. Looks like lots of good info IF you can read Kanji....
