  1. My best set. Probably not quite High class, but I like this simple beauty GOTO Kenjo
  2. Today I received the eagerly awaited book Soshu Den masterpieces by Junji Homma, published in 1975. The slightly larger dimensions of 52 x 38 cm (weight about 9 kg) allow many blades to be displayed in a 1: 1 scale. Really great photos and oshigata from 89 blades Maybe some Soshu fan can be inspired
  3. I agree with Chris People have in nature to believe that this is a bargain People buy miraculous water filters, pills after which you will immediately lose 20 kg or water for bald after which you will have a mane like in your twenties It is always a lack of information and education And there are always plenty of buyers
  4. Jussi, that's great job Again a very useful database I appreciate your selflessness. The amount of work and energy you share with us for free Thank you very much
  5. Congratulations Daniel. It is a nice blade in itself, the pass of Juyo only confirms its quality
  6. Here you will find several blades attributed to Masamune https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/g494819256
  7. It was not my intention to translate the kanteisho of each blade. Rather, create an English index with the dimensions and data given in the Shinsa document A full translation would be really great - but it's from the realm of dreams

    what do you look for?

    1. Consistent and healthy jigane, bright hamon with lots of hataraki 2. correctly estimate the period especially for o-suriage blades 3. how many blades he created until he reached his peak form. What is most important in the production of a blade for a perfect result
  9. Great job Jussi. Juyo Nado Zufu must contain an estimated 13-15 thousand items. I didn't even think about this database, because of its large size. And you did it all by yourself. Admirable
  10. I tried to buy Index Tokubetsu Juyo Nado Zufu in English. I have approached several long-term collectors, but it is clear that there is probably nothing like that. I think such an index would be useful for many Nihonto enthusiasts So - are we able to get enough applicants to make the economic cost acceptable? (It is too expensive for an individual) My idea: Create a file in xls format (for filtering, sorting) with data available from TJ Nado Zufu - TJ Nado Zufu's number and the position of the blade in it - the name of the swordsmith - School - Den or not - Mei: mumei / zaimei / shumei / orikashimei - period or date if indicated - nagasa - sori - motohaba - sakihaba - kasane - kissaki If there are at least 20-30 of us, the fee per person should not exceed a few hundred USD Also, if there is a member among us who is willing to make a database for a fee - I would greatly appreciate it It's just an idea. I am enclosing the Meito Zukan Index, which I made for myself for better orientation in the publication Anyone who is interested, send me info to branislav.kalabus@gmail.com for better archiving of applicants Meito Zukan by Fujishiro.xlsx
  11. Peter, you may find love even with this piece https://www.samurai-nippon.net/SHOP/V-1868.html
  12. My last experience with AOI is as a month ago. It is true that the communication was lengthy and I had to send more e-mails. But in the end, everything went well
  13. It's not. The auction link just doesn't work This yes https://sword-auction.com/en/product/3156/as20445-刀荘司筑前大掾大慶藤直胤花押/
  14. The mounts are really very nice But the sugata is, in my opinion, Muromachi
  15. Thanks Michael. Your view of the matter is valuable to me. I will take your advice
