  1. Unfortunately, I view her more like a loose cannon, John.
  2. Trust me that it's no better in the U.S. I sent a new laptop computer to my sister, in its original box, & insured for $500. It got to her, with the box opened, & the screen smashed in. The post office refused to even open a case, let alone pay the insurance! I went to their Inspector General, who just referred me back to them. So, I'm meeting with our Congressman, who I happen to know, & we're going to get some people fired, federal employees or not!
  3. That's been discussed before, but it's good to bring it up again, for newer members.

  5. Welcome, Barry. Try rubbing a little corn starch or talcum powder into the mei, & see if you can get a better photo.
  6. Very nice blade, & well worth studying.
  7. Thanks, Piers. Yup, solid silver. I drank sake out of a silver cup, one time, & it really added to the taste & "feel." That little pitcher feels like it weighs a pound! I bought a nice daiginjo for tomorrow, & will be cutting up a nice block of ahi for sashimi, a little daikon, & some homemade pickles. Still too warm for hot matcha, but I make up icy-cold chai, matcha, milk, & cream - decadent! Say Hi to your lovely wife, too.
  8. Robert, please post a photo of the completely bare blade. That's how we can determine jidai (age), & is the first think to do in kantei (evaluation).
  9. This is a gift for my wife on our 42nd anniversary tomorrow. Translation?
  10. Welcome to NMB, Doug. I always chuckle when a new member wanders in, with a blade he got from somewhere, not knowing just how deep the swamp is, when they get interested in their blade. Just a quick warning that this is one of the most-expensive hobbies! Please read http://www.nbthk-ab.org/swordcare.pdf This will teach you how to take care of your blade.
  11. Wow! Something else I know so little about!
