  1. Which one do you recommend? 1st 2nd or 3rd in the pic?
  2. Hey guys I'm getting a bohi cut into my existing blade by a artisan in Japan, he has notified my agent that the sori could be affected by about 1-2mm which doesn't sound like much. Will this affect how the blade goes into the saya? Intuitively speaking, 1-2mm doesn't sound like it should cause much issue, but I would like to hear from you guys. Cheers Jeremy
  3. I may have something that might suit you. Muromachi period, around 44cm Nagasa, buke koshirae. Polish is decent , no chips or bends. Unsigned and unpapered, aoi art has attributed it to mihara school. If you're keen private message me here or email me directly at jezah81@gmail.com. I can provide pics that way. The wrap is loose but intact. Fuchi and kashira are modern , not antique.
  4. Horseback riding would make a great addition to our curriculum !!
  5. Thanks for posting this. As a toyama ryu practitioner, I found this article very interesting and a fun read
  6. Thanks for your reply. It does answer my question actually. By shinae, I'm assuming you meant shiai/ duel type matches ?
  7. Im trying to figure out how popular 1cm or less sori swords were back in the day by the bushi? Were they more symbolic like the fukkoto type swords or did some bushi actually prefer using swords with shallow sori? Tried googling this with not much information found . Thanks! Jeremy
  8. Thats good to hear. Makes it easier to make transactions
  9. Hi Dave From memory they don't use PayPal which is something to think about. Unless they have changed that. But I used my credit card to purchase from them
  10. I second namikawa Heibei. Bought a few things from them in the past, and they're very responsive and great to deal with.
  11. Thanks for all that information. I hope its smooth sailing for me when it comes time to ship.
