  7. I should have quoted post #41. My point is we never really know, signed or mumei, ubu or suriage, it is all an opinion, each as valid as the next when they come from NBTHK or NTHK. Whether it's signed or not, or ubu or not, shouldn't invalidate the opinion, and we never really know as asked in #41.
  8. We have to remember that even the papers on a signed, ubu Kanemoto are still an opinion. It's not a guarantee that it's actually a Kanemoto. For all we know there could be 1000 signed, ubu Kanemoto fakes out there, all made by the same guy, that we now consider to be the originals and the real ones considered fakes, because they aren't like all those others. Maybe a signed, ubu, papered one has a better chance of being an original than a mumei, suriage, papered one but only if we are correct in what we think the originals are supposed to look like. Just my two cents, but I'm firmly of the buy the sword not the signature or papers mindset and don't buy because of an opinion on who made it. Wayne
  9. #1 Sold. #5 still available.
