  1. HI UWE and Gerain , Thank you for the information and the link. The majority of the Jingasa that I found had a curved front edge and were described as a rider's helmet, but I did find some wooden Jingasa, but only one with this metal construction with this bowl shape and especially with the straight edge described as" tetsu bajo gasa ",is it the right description for thisshape of Jingasa?
  2. Hello all. I bought this helmet a few years ago and I can't find any information about its particular shape. I did find some examples for riders with a raised edge but none with flat edges. So I would like to know the name of this type of helmet and the period when this shape was common. any information on this type of helmet would be welcome. best cerjak
  3. Dear Geraint thank you for your comment on thisWakizashi . is it possible to estimate the age of the tsuba and tsuka ? Although heavily used, it is not a matter to me most important is that these components are old. (I realize that my criteria of choice are very far from the members of the forum. However, it corresponds to the low budget that I want to spend on the purchase. On the tsuba and tsuka is it a problem of style or of state ? Do you have an example of a type of mount that would better fit this Wakizashi ? best regards Jean-Luc Cerjak
  4. A Wakizashi for opinions Unokokubi-zukuri Nagasa: 45cm (cutting section on the blade) Sori: 1.1.cm (curvature) Nakago: 11.2 cm Hada : ? some remain Hamon: ? Mune: Mitsu Kassane: 6.4 mm MIhaba:2.74 cm I would great if I could have opinions and more informations about the mount ,the MEI and the possible age of the blade end Tsuba etc.. After my previous post on my Katana I don’t expect that it is great blade but hoping that it could be a old and honest Wakizashi certainly with fatal flaw so not good for a pure collector but still good for me... BEST CERJAK
  5. Once again I thank you all for your answers and have share your knowledge. I am well aware that this katana is far from perfect and is not a master piece too .however I ‘m still satisfied with its acquisition because my goal when buying was to find an ancient sword from a time when battles and conflicts were rife. With a blade not restored and somehow "untouched" I accept the defects this blade that bears the mark of centuries and with its later mount but of correct quality. It's more the historical side that guides me, may be not a good investment but I do not look for a perfect piece with a real market value . If the blade was with mei that would have been perfect piece for me. Best Cerjak JL
  6. I found a similar example in the PEM museum (Essex)
  7. Hello I would like to receive opinions on this Uchikake Kimono. maybe a member has knowledge of Japanese kimono. Best JL Cerjak
  8. Thank you all for your contributions to enlighten the neophyte I am. So if I understand well the blade could from the 16th century and the mount early 19 th century? Can you tell me what are the characteristics of the blade that can date this period? Is it as a whole a good piece? The defect revealed in the photos on one side of the KISSAKI is it serious ? and does it affect the value of the blade significantly? Finally I was unable to identify the type of Hada: Ayasugi or itame? as well as the type of Hamon. Sorry to ask all these questions, the answers are certainly obvious for the majority of the members but nevertheless the subject requires a lot of knowledge for a beginner... best regards Cerjak JL
  9. Hello Thank you for your clear answer. I would also like to know if the tusba/Tsuba/Fuchi date from the same period as the blade and of course your opinion and comment on this sword would be welcome. Best Cerjak
  10. Nagasa: 64.5cm (cutting section on the blade) Sori: 1.62cm (curvature) Nakago: 19.4 cm Hada :Ayasugi or itame ? Hamon: ? Boshi: ? KISSAKI O 3 cm Mune: Mitsu Kassane: 7.2 cm MIhaba:2.96cm Tsuba: w 8,7cm / Thickness 5.2 mm Can this sword be identified on the basis of these high definition pictures? I already presented this sword several years ago but with low resolution photos and I realized by browsing the site that it was very unsuitable for comment. I hope that with these new photos and description and measurements of the blade it will now be possible to obtain more information on this sword. I would also like to know if the tusba/Tsuba/Fuchi date from the same period as the blade. Finally, on the I seem to see the rest of writing but I'm definitely not sure ... I thank you in advance for the interest you will bring to my sword and hope that its identification will be possible Jean-Luc CERJAK
