  1. Bump Apologies for the bump. I'm still hopeful someone more experienced and versed in kanji can make out a meaning and/or translation out of the last 4 photos, the presumed poem on the outside. I'm really curious as to what it might say and whether or not it's related to the tea ceremony or something else. If someone figures it out I'll be forever in debt👏😌
  2. Your making me blush! I'm pleased it arrived without issues and to have it go to a good home. And your display looks lovely. Could you post a photo of the whole cabinet? Would love to see it.
  3. Thomas, i'm sure i've seen that one before. However I can't remember where right now. Something in the back of my mind keeps saying Ichimonji, any chance you have more information? Sword with a story.
  4. I think that by that time this forum has been archived and will (still), be regarded as thé number one source of information regarding real and fake swords and a statue of Brian made in memorial.
  5. If you don't mind me asking, were the chances perceived to be low for Tokubetsu Hozon because of the current polish or something else (hagire)? Because otherwise one would think the increase in value one have to be greater than 600 or say a thousand.
  6. I'm reasonably sure I've heard about a Hozon+Tokubetsu Hozon shinsa in one. Was the one you applied for like that or just Hozon? If I'm mistaken I'll be happy to be corrected. I'm curious as to the price difference if they still or at all do double shinsa sessions.
  7. Well the tag is just something for convenience and I think board opinion is no one knows until shinsa/papering process. And even then, with mumei blades the result won't be cut in stone (so it could paper with different results between organisations or even with the same one). It's a real Japanese antique so no matter what you did good Also swordsmiths tend to have the same names for multiple generations with differences in between.
  8. Dear Morita, please see the photo's in my last post click here I've tried to make clear photos of the poem! If any part is unclear I will add new photos of parts needed. I'm quite curious. Thank you Piers. Yes that is what I meant, apologies if it was unclear Morita san. But I didn't want to make this a duplicate topic. Please see links above

    What is this?

    This is the kind of (upside down), 'cup' shape that is said to have been used at one time by Furuta Oribe as a big tea 'bowl' when he did a sort of tea ceremony for his company and some other generals. Can't remember if it was prior to or after a big battle or which one.
  10. Neither is it for me. But all the more reason to look at the things archived online. Two other spots that are in my opinion, great places to spend time and get nothing done. http://kourindo.sakura.ne.jp/index.html http://www.nihonto-museum.com/
  11. I was looking at this sword a couple days ago. Pretty classical sugata. https://www.seiyudo.com/ka-030617.htm
  12. Dear Morita san, domo! If someone is looking for a challenge I have added 4 photos of the outside carving in the translation topic (link in the opening post).
