  2. You may be amused by it but it's like two teens sitting by each other texting each other.
  3. Members please... If your replying to post above yours WE DONT NEED IT REPETED. WASTE OF SPACE! Back to my hole.

  8. " 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

  14. 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.
