    WTB : Maedate

    Maybe a ring if that doesn't hide the "shiwa" and "mayu".

    WTB : Maedate

    Nothing for me ? Also, maybe a maedate "Kuwagata" could be suitable.
  3. Hello members, I'm currently looking for a maedate that would match well with my armor (see picture attached). A fairly thin and long maedate so as not to completely hide the front decorations of the kabuto. Maybe a ken, or something else in this style. Regards
  4. Jacques, your opinions are not welcome in my topics. Thank you in advance to respect that. Manuel, indeed there is a notable difference in the last kanji. This certificate really seems to be a fake. Thanks again for your help.
  5. No problem, no hard feelings. You have better eyes than me then because I can't see the hada well with these bad pictures. And personally, unlike you, I have not yet been able to see all Muramasa's of the world despite my many books on the subject (sorry for this little irony ). I posted this topic because in more than 20 years of passion for the Japanese sword I have never seen this kind of Fukunaga Suiken. I was interested to know if it was true or fake, just for my information. Thanks anyway for your reply Manuel.
  6. Manuel, with all due respect, your comment is presumptuous. These pictures don't allow for a clear judgment, too bad quality. If you refer to the hamon, know that Muramasa also did hitatsura. You should be more modest before looking at Japanese swords. And the subject is the certificate, not the sword.
  7. Thank you for your comment Jussi. I agree with you, it's very suspicious. I was surprised when I saw this curious Fukunaga Suiken on a Meibutsu, hence my question.
  8. Hello members, Do you know this type of certificate ? Fukunaga Suiken ? What do you think about it ? Fake or real ? Many thanks in advance for your replies.
  9. Hello Adam, I've already found an Ichiryu tsuba that matches well, but I'm still looking for the F/K. Could you send me a picture of your fuchi ?
  10. Hello Marco, Just a question : Why you don't buy the set of your example attached ?
  11. Thanks Ken and Greg for your replies. Yes, two very interesting tsuba here. My pictures don't do them justice, much better in hands. The metal alloy of the second one is fantastic. The silver reflections are much more visible in real life, I've never seen that on another tsuba before.
  12. Dear members, 1) Sentoku Tsuba signed Toshinaga Saku – 利長作 High quality work depicting copper birds with some small gold inlays (eyes) flying over a raging sea. Musashi province – Mid Edo ~ 1760 Nara school. Toshinaga was a student of renowned craftsmen as Nara Masanaga, Yoshishige… Kinko Meikan rank = Ryoko Dimensions = 7,4 x 7 cm 980 € 2) Very rare Tsuba signed Senoo Saku Beautiful representation of Daruma wrapped in his robes decorated with floral motifs in Ke-bori . The ring to his ear is in silver and the pupil of his eye in Shakudo. The alloy of this Tsuba seems to be predominantly made of copper and silver. Senoo school, late Edo. Dimensions : 7,1 x 6,4 cm 1700 €
  13. Hello members, I'm currently looking for a nice kinko shakudo tsuba and F/K (or a full tsuka), dragon design. Small katana size (approx 7,5 cm to 8 cm for the tsuba). Ideally something that matches well with this goto kojiri (see picture). So, no nanako work. To be honest, I need quality pieces but I don't have the budget for a very famous name at several thousand euros/dollars. Thanks ! Regards
  14. SOLD Thank you very much !
