  1. Tsumami .... Yes....My stupid mistake. Greets Stefan
  2. I do not agree. In this style the cross over would be twisted as in the normal nempu -maki style. In this case the visible croosover is in the Tsunami style, therefore I would call it an "Kiodai Murasaki Jabara Maki " If this ist correct, the crossover of the stings underneath this visible crossover in tsunami-maki will be in nempu technique.

    My newest Tanto

    Very nice blade. Juged by jihada, I would say Masahide Group. This Kind of O-Hada at the hamachi is often seen in tanto. The lively hada with ist flowing elements support this. Tetsu seems to be full of colour, another suishinshi trademark. Hamon ? I can´t see enough, but the ( ko ) nie seems to be good. Signature : Masakage is correct. Indeed there was a Smith in the mon of Mashide with this name. However, a beautyful blade. Congratuliations. Greetings from Berlin Stefan
  4. I can only aggree. Greets Stefan

    Mystery Sword

    The blade does not have the typical nambokucho shape. It looks like middle to late muromachi jidai The shape of the nakago and the mei are wrong for sadamune. Hamon is not typical. It seems to be an very broad midareba as seen in sue shoshu. In my humble opinion : Gimei.
  6. Sig. : Goto Etsu ( ? ) jo + Kao Gruß Stefan
  7. Tsuba Nr. 1 : I would say late Kaga-Kinko Tsuba.

    "Munemitsu" mei

    To be honest : I see nearly nothing clear. O.K. an attempt : A very thin habuchi, suguha and super fine kitae...Lord of Kuwana ? Greets Stefan

    A Tachi tsuba

    Tachi-shi is, far as i do remember, a group of artists, like katsuchi. So a tsuba made by them does ot necessarly has to be a tachi-tsuba. Please correct me if i am wrong. Greets Stefan

    A Tachi tsuba

    Nice tsuba. Nunome all over. slightly worn at the higher Points. (cross ) It is in my point of view an handachi tsuba in kaga-nunome style. It looks a litte bit like kenjo tsuba.

    "Munemitsu" mei

    Please look into the kanji. Additonaly look on the shadows of the kanji ... I aggree, it is not easy to judge by photos And no, not all blades do have clear yasurime. But when one Feature ist "overclean" why the other is not ? Many blades of this period do have clear Yasurime.... Only points to think of. Not more, not less. Beeing true : There are exampels, but they are more than Juyo....

    "Munemitsu" mei

    In my oppinion :Gimei. Yasurime is not clear, but on the other hand i can see tagane marks inside the kanji...Makura are also there.
  13. I am sorry to say, even with the new pic i can´t change my opinion from my first post that this is not real zogan. With the help of an magnifying glass it is relativ clear visible Greetings Stefan
  14. I do not think that this is an old example in my humble opinion. The zogan does not look correct. it is partial only gilded and not as usual true hirazogan. At a first glance i thought of partial uttori, unusal, but possible in Yoshiro, but this is also not the case. Even the fallen out parts are looking strange. Most probably I am wrong, I am no expert in kodogu. Greetings from Germany Stefan
  15. Hm, die Kashira sieht wie eine schlechtere Mito Kinko-Arbeit aus, die Fuchi : Typisches Hamano von guter Qualität. Sorry.... The Kashira looks like low grade Mito-Kinko workmanship, the Fuchi : Typical Hamano of good quality. Greetings from Germany Stefan
  16. Haruchika Hamano school Name : Yasohachi, Seijuken Student of Hamano Haruyuki Greetings from Germany Stefan
  17. First Impression : Not Japanese workmanship It looks like an european hobby handwork. Most probably I `am wrong as usualy in question of Kodogu Greets Stefan
