  1. Context please. Used where?
  2. " I don't think it's a crafted hada, but just the result of the nature of the local steel that Mantetsu used. " this is correct. Bar stock will show fine grain....not hada per se
  3. It's more like he's not happy with high bid. Happens to me a lot. I've seen simluar tsuba at three times that price.
  4. Looking for daisho tsuba box. Used preferred condition ok to useable is fine.
  5. Mei on kogatana are seldom the smith. More like a tribute. Won't have anything to do with tanto.

  8. I once owned a gunto which saya was covered with same* then the hard lacquer. I don't think the saddle soap to harsh use just a mild mixture on a rag wiped on then off. Nice pick up. Love Emura swords.
  9. Nice double habaki leads us to older blade. Just the one pix??
