Just a few words once again from my side:

 

The meeting was well attended and very interesting. First of all I want to say Thank you to the Hypo Kunsthalle and the staff there. We were allowed to hold our meeting there for free. So Thanks to the director Dr. Roger Diederen, Dr. Nerina Santorius and Ms. von Teuffenbach.

 

Since we wanted to see the collection Barbier-Mueller our meeting didn´t take long. You could see a katana by Gassan Sadakazu. A juyo blade and the youngest juyo blade ever (from 1906). A Sadamune utsushi.

And a daisho by Gassan Sadakatsu made in the year 1933 as a gift for the newborn emperor. The blades were a tachi and a tanto.

 

A daisho pair of tsuba were displayed by Kyozan Mitsunaka. You can find pictures and a description in Token Bijutsu No. 746; March 2019. But in my opinion the photos are photoshopped to death. Especially when you had the chance to see the photos and the originals side by side.

Great blades, great tsuba, great people!
I enjoyed the entertaining debate about artistic value of kinko vs. old iron tsuba - you won't find these thoughts in books...

They were also very kind to let you take photographs. That's unusual in this day & age. Thanks for including them,.

Andi - can you give a precis of the major discussion points???  This division of kinko vs old iron tsuba has been hacked back and forth on the Board.  For example, I found this a most enlightening thread:

http://www.militaria...ng-to-old-iron/

 

And if one does an all forum search on manhole quite some numbers of other discussions pop up to be devoured by the devotees of either (or both!!) sides of the argument/discussion.

Thanks BaZZa,
I'll have a look at the link!
(In my books lots of images are there of Kinko and/or iron tsuba with plain descriptions of the designs only...)
