  1. The habaki looks to be made of just brass, but I'm as green as it comes on nohinto! Thanks for patience! dan
  2. Thanks for the quick reply, Stephen! I haven't massaged the nakago yet or even taken a bristle brush to it, but I will post some additional photos at that point as well. Per the page referenced, would this be a koa isshin mantetsu made in 1941? Also, what is the best method for removing the habaki safely? Thanks! Dan
  3. So far, I've removed the flaking red rust with a resin hammer. Here's what I've got showing of the mei so far. Any ideas? I think there may be another character or two above, but I don't want to get ahead of myself as I clean it. Thanks! dan
  4. Thanks for the replies everyone! I will work on the red rust since there seems to be some consensus on the flakes. I assume the brass or wood object to strike the rust with is to prevent additional red rust. What kind of oil should I use on it? I will definitely post some updated photographs when I've made some progress. Dan
  5. I picked this up and it needs some TLC. What do you recommend to clean it up as well as any additional info anyone can add about the object itself? Thanks Dan
