  1. Thank you Ford, do you have any example of mixed inlay material tsuba? What you think about the age of the tsuba? It appears late Muromachi / Momoyama to me
  2. Sorry i step in, what about this one? Heianjo made also mixed materials inlay too? This appear to be brass, copper and maybe some shibuichi drop.
  3. Thank you for sharing, this video was shoot during the presentation of the book "Japanese SWORDS: a journey into the art" published by I.N.T.K (the italian association for the Japanese sword).

    Long Mumei Katana

    Gendaito simply it won't be due the lack of signature. The hamon has not bright habuchi because it's all in konie deki, which might point towords the Mino area

    i know in the current polish status is quite hard to make some hypothesis, but here's some hataraki My thought would be for shinshinto too from beginning tho i wanted some not influenced opinion to see if something else would come out

    Long Mumei Katana

    I will take a picture later of nakago, i can tell you the thickness of nakago gets wider before taper to the nakagojiri, resulting in the habaki almost stuck when taking it out. One idea about this sword was a well made shinshinto utsushi, also because the heavy feeling in hand

    Gassan sword

    @Mark As i said i'm from Italy, i'm actually member of the INTK (italian association for the Japanese sword) and the polisher confirmed that the mei appears to be genuine. Anyway i can't submit to shinsa before it's polished. The sword will be soon seen by Leon Kapp and Yoshindo Yoshihara in an event in Novara, Italy, since the polisher (Massimo Rossi) already talked them about it. If you have any dubt about it i'm glad to hear @Brian I seen many mei about Gassan Sadakazu and Sadakatsu, and the mei of my swords looks like a daimei from Sadakatsu, not from Sadakazu himself as the one you posted. If you compare the characters "gassan" and "sada" with a Sadakatsu mei i think you'll notice the similarity here a Sadakatsu

    Gassan sword

    Hello everybody, this is my first post here. My name is Manuel and i come from Italy. I recently bought the following sword and i'm doing some research to find out where it comes from. The sword is a katana in shirasaya with following size Nagasa: 67.5 cm. Sori: 2.1 cm. Moto-haba: 25 mm. Saki-haba: 14 mm. Moto-gasane: 5 mm. Saki-gasane: 4 mm The blade is really slender and lightweight, more than a usual katana, and probably made for one hand sabre in western style koshirae. It has horimono skilfully engraved on both sides and bo-hi. It presents two ware one near the dragon and one inside the bo-hi in the opposite side and is in old polish (is now being polished by a togishi that should fix also the ware) The nakago is signed in both sides and has the following mei: 大正聖帝御即位御太刀餘鐵帝室技藝員月山貞一八十二歳彫同作 (Made from remaining iron from the making of the enthronement tachi of Taisho Emperor, Imperial Household Artisan Gassan Sadakazu, age 82, horimono by the same) 大正六年七月吉日以備前一文字傳謹精鍛之 (Forged in Bizen Ichimonji style, Auspicious Day, July 1917) Now i think you can understand why i want to have more info about it Pictures following
