  1. Nice to know there are still men to our north that still have a pair....good luck with the sales👍
  2. It is like deja vu all over again around here, we had a thread about this not too long ago.
  3. I am curious also regarding the table with the water stones; were they for sale or was there a polishing demo or?

    A pin punch would work also if you are careful.
  5. The pilot who dropped the incindiary bomb started a small forest fire up by Mt. Emily due to issues with fog and navigation; last i knew, the sword was at the police department in Brookings, OR in a display case. I intend to see if I can examine it and get photos sometime in the near future, as I am moving to Oregon again soon.

    Get a mekuginuki (tool for removing peg) and use it to move the ito aside, then push the mekugi out; it may take a sharp rap to get it started.
  7. We don't have a post number anymore since the update....Thomas, the man I am asking about was wearing a gray T shirt with tan slacks or long shorts, standing behind a table with a Noh mask and a yellow vase in the foreground, with a hotel luggage cart off to the side.........sorry for the work, hope you can help. He looks like a guy i surfed with years ago maybe; his shirt has Haleiwa, Jockos, etc. on it, those are North Shore Oahu surf spots. Thanks......
  8. The existing fukure will get worse with any non sensitive polish; if polished, the togishi will have to work around those. Not a job for an amateur. Probably not cost effective, imo.
  9. Thomas, who was the gentleman in the Hawaiian surf spot T shirt? He looks familiar, like i should know him.....great photos by the way, thanks.

    It will deter door to door "salesmen".
  11. Keep your photos oriented vertically, and use your finger to wipe off excess.
  12. When you say working on, I hope you do not mean actually working on.....I can't tell if the lines are all messed up, or if it just a photo artifact; the acid bath has not been helpful to the appearance, either. The fukura seems way off as well, if not a result of lens distortion.
  13. Swap meet only has replica items; Bob Benson may have some swords which trend to higher quality of Nihonto. All my stuff is still in American Samoa. Ken may see this and have better guidance.
