  1. The blade is heavy and sharp.
  2. I have a few SS blades with the Naval Anchor stamp, but this one is a larger, i never seen a real WWII blade with English?
  3. All the holes are drilled, two through, one not through.
  4. Found with a WWII sword. Thank You.
  5. No headache here Rich, glad to see a smile next to your headache! LOL hehe "May 2011 bring you lots of wonderful Nihonto; all Juyo." I second that motion. Cheers!
  6. I agree about the cloves oil leaving marks John, for me it was on the blades, staining them, i stay away from using anything with cloves oil in it myself now, i use the 3 oils below, all good IMO, never had the chance to use Camellia Oil? Rem oil Hoppe's oil Outer oil
  7. It is hard for me to say how much on a Emura blade, the prices can go high these days, here is one that just sold on Ebay last month, hope this helps. http://cgi.ebay.ph/Japanese-WW-II-Army- ... 0288550303
  8. Very Nice Bowie! Here is one i have made by Kuzan, not Nihonto (remember the video of the bullet getting cut in two hitting one of his swords a few years back i believe?) when he was working with Bob Loveless in 1978 as marked on the blade, he used a chisel like you would use to mark a Japanese Sword, notice the sheath looks like Bob made it?
  9. My advice is to wait and buy one in polish with paper from a dealer in Japan you know you can trust like one below, don't waste your money on the unknown like i did in the past. I have bought swords from them below and i trust them, let others buy out of polish swords that know more then us. http://www.aoi-art.com/ http://www.samuraishokai.jp/index.html http://www.e-sword.jp/newlineup.htm
