  14. I have sold sword to quite a few members and have never had any problems, you guys can say Hi if you feel like it... Lets speak the truth here .. Mark contacted me about a sword that was purchased by me on ebay ......He really wanted sword. After a little while I agreed to sell him sword to buy another one, after I had studied it......Anyways I shiped him sword ,I never seen a hagire or any problems to be quite honest.. After mark received sword he emailed me saying what a wonderful sword he was so happy blah blah..... Now heres where it gets interesting a year after sword has been sold to him he emails me saying there is a hagirea....... Well I never seen one, hes never seen one and now a year later he is upset?. I am sorry but you dont buy a sword and inspect it say your happy with it and a year later threaten people......... I made no claims or garentess about sword...Do not slander my name for some bull...... And dont threaten me ..... Respectfully Yitzy

  17. Hi I have a nco sword I reently picked up there are some flags on habaki that I have never seen on other nco swords...... Is anyone familar with these marks? Thanks in advance Yitzy
  18. Here is an excellent video on the art of sword making.. There are six parts to the entire film. I highly reccomend watching it. Best Yitzy
  19. I cant say when it was done.....blade is healthy so can kanji be as healthy as an old koto sword? Its poss it was added later look at some horimono on swords some added now and some orign to sword Yitzy
  20. interesting I wonder why this smith signed this way i have seen a few blades like this before but judging from the nakago this looks\to be shinto koto period. The blade has been forged well Yitzy
  21. Hi All yes I was referring to a nata I have heard both opinions that they are gardening tools and beheading tools. I guess any sword can be used for beheading.. I have seen the clip on you tube of the poor daniel pearl whom was beheaded by sword so I guess my question was answered, no specific Japanese sword made for beheading ? I have heard of other swords from other parts of the world made Specifically for beheading.... I think I am going to put this for a polish the weight of this blade is incredible heavy cheers Yitzy
  22. Thank you chris was that the smiths name and is that a school? Yitzy
