    Hi all, I was wondering if you could have a look at this Wakizashi and tell me your opinion on the Mei being original or Gimei. I know this is not easy from photo's but would appreciate the try. Kind regards, Rick
  4. Looking great Brian, thank you for all your time and effort you put in this. I know how much work it is
  5. Thanks Markus for this great Christmas present! Have added 5 books (with the help of Mariusz) to my library.
  6. Thank you very much George and Morita san, I do appreciate your help and you effort reading my post! I have two more photo's of this blade but they are even worse then this one and the photo's are of the blade. The blade is in civilian mountings but looks to be a Showato from what I can see. I will do some research on the the name now I know what it is. Thanks again!
  7. Hello all, I would like to ask your help on translating the Mei of this Military Katana. I am sorry that the photo is of bad quality. Thanks in advance for your time and help. Kind regards, Rick
  8. Today was the second meeting of the Dutch Token Society, where we were informed that the catalogues are no longer available. All have been sold. The total visitors counted until last week (Today was the last day) was about 50.000
  9. Worth going, especially if you like Samurai Armor. Visited the exhibition a few weeks ago.
  10. Laurent, Better save up for a good blade then buying a mediocre one. I bought blades way to early and also looked primarily at the cost. It is better to just save up for a good blade and steer away from ebay, unless you exactly know what you are looking at and the seller is known. There are enough trustworthy sellers within Europe who have swords that are fair priced =) Just my 2 cents.
  11. For those that want to order the Catalogue here is a direct link: http://wereldmuseumwinkel.com/pages/2/w ... ductId=138 I visited The Loo Palace in Apeldoorn 2 months ago and they have a new director who has allowed making photo's as the photo policy was a bit outdated . I do agree with this, I understand you are not allowed to use flash but just photo's should be allowed. Photo's do not give you the experience of being there in person. I would still recommend everyone to visit The Loo Palace even after seeing my photo's. And I would do the same for the Rotterdam Exhibition. But it is good to know making photo's is not allowed then I can leave my camera at home when I visit next month. The Catalogue is nice so that will have to do.
  12. Just to add a easier readable format to the topic
  13. Richard, If needed contact me and I will help re-sizing.

    A Special Thank you

    A honest thank you from my side to all that contribute and make this forum a very valuable one with great knowledge, honest, friendly and helpful people. It might be harsh when you arrive here as a newbie and get told the truth but if you really want to learn true Nihonto,Tsuba, Kodogu etc. you will understand why this is and don't have to question it. Thank you. A little tip from beginner to beginner: accept your mistakes, learn from them and move on. Use the superb free knowledge here and enjoy this magnificant Art. Go for quality but before you even know what that is STUDY =) Just a little something I have learned here.
  15. Thank you Clive and all who contributed, a lot of work went into this as I can see.
  16. Luc, I was present at the Ducth To-Ken meeting last weekend where Mr. Duindam mentioned some of the pieces that will be displayed and I have to say I really look forward visitting the exhibition. I definately will buy the catalogue as soon as it is available.
