  7. Hi, I have bought a sword that was probably made by Masanori in May of 1944. It has a straight temper line but it does not seem to have yokote line. Is that normal for swords made in 1944? I truely appreciate all the help from the people on this board. Thank you, David C.
  8. The sword I have has late war hardware but the kashira seems out of place. This one has no dimples in it. What do you think? Thanks for the help, David C
