  1. I have one of these. I'll have to check the thickness
  2. I keep green papers for lesser value items. If I remember they fakes were only for high end items There is no mileage for an item less than a couple of grand when you can get many thousands of pounds for a high end sword for excample So green is OK for me and I couldn't re-paper for my items
  3. I've bought a few thing from this seller always the sale went well I just wondered how it couldn't be authentic having papers - strange
  4. Thanks both for the feed back - I suppose it just depends how high it goes Gone up a chunk since earlier in the day and still 6 days to go
  5. What do you recon to this sale? I was about to put it on my watch list but then saw the get out on the description https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402426819368 Never seen a papered example that might not be authentic
  6. Here are mine. I've left out some by Hallam students and others that have an aperture but may not be actual hitsuana Some will be revival pieces and the odd repro Normally I like to show big images but I'm restricted by NMB size rules but I don't see this as a problem in this case as I believe the outline is shown OK

    Is it too easy

    One of the indicators of an old tsuba but this as usual can only be taken as a guide
  8. Thankyou Greg (or maybe Grev!). I just love images
  9. Paul usually gets to the UK once a year so may be easier to hand it to him Of course Covid may mess up his visiting plans
  10. Mine is Tetsunin (unconfirmed) I kept this one because it has been reduced to its most basic elements but is not going to win any beauty contests
  11. Brian That would be Greg. I expect you are doing too much before recovering properly Grev

    Hi John When I get a PM it is because the sender doesn't wish to appear on the main MNB page so really it has to be confidential Sorry

    Couldn't resist! Help! The Beatles Help, I need somebody Help, not just anybody (a katchu collector) Help, you know I need someone, help When I was younger, so much younger than today I never needed anybody's help in any way But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors Help me if you can, I'm feeling down

    I am a little surprised that I've had no replies to my two posts I have had an insightful PM about the kabuto and this post can now be considered closed Back to the hanbo Just one question. Does anyone have an image showing the correct tare?
