  3. Maybe it's just a parody on "how to care for a blade" ??
  4. I don't think that will be the case :-) I only saw a few blades attributed to Go ( all just pics ... hmmm ) and it was a slightly different level
  5. Because I don't have many alternatives Jacques I do not question Shinsa judgment I'm just wondering what alternatives can be found for "Den" I'm still at the beginning of learning and I will be for a long time In my neighborhood (and even in the surrounding countries) I do not know anyone I might meet from time to time and he will be willing to share with me his knowledge and experience
  6. Also this way Thank you very much for Jussi It is an unusual generous gesture that is often not seen today By the way, at today's translation prices, this database is worth $ 15-25k
  7. I use Sea freight from Japan for packages of books Without the possibility of tracking the shipment The package usually arrives in Europe 10-12 weeks after leaving Japan
  8. I recently received a new piece in my collection. The blade is a mumei with the attribute Den Tametsugu I know that the "Den" attribute is not unusual, it usually means that the blade also contains properties that are not usual for Swordsmith to whom the blade is assigned Therefore, I would like to hear your opinion If we didn't know Shinsa result who would you think of as a swordsmith ? For capacity reasons, there are only a few pictures If anyone wants to see the full gallery, they can find it here https://www.zonerama.com/Nihonto/Album/7069496
  9. Does anyone have an English translation of comments for book Showa Daimeito Zufu's for sale? It can be a printed or electronic version Thanks in advance
