  1. So out of curiosity, how much does a togishi cost to have examine your sword what are typical shipping rates?
  2. I understand that from a collectors view point, I'm actually learning a lot and I don't want you guys to think I'm dismissing these points. Any other sword I get later I'll certainly practice better care. Actually if there's somewhere you can direct me for dos and donuts that's be appreciated
  3. Thank you very much. I'm excited to learn this. There is an inscription on the other side as well. If it's not to much, when I can I'll clear it up some and get a good pic. I know you guys probably cringe at the mention of that but I'm just curious. The swords got a lot of sentimental value to it and that's what lead me hear to begin with searching for translations. I can't tell how long I've been digging around to be hear lol. Thanks again too, it really means a lot to mean.
  4. I just want to know it's history so I can give it the respect it deserves, which truly it deserves much much much more. In a wierd way it was my childhood friend.
  5. I understand your concern but the blade has been through the development of a child since age 12 who had 4 older brothers and few friends. Also if it helps ease your pain. I'm hand sharpening it to return the blade to it's convex edge as a prior owner used a grinding wheel before me. Also after edging I'll polish the blade, clean it thoroughly then allow the blade to soak in oil soaked clothes for a few days to saturate the steel and preserve the finish. It's long past it's prime, when I got it it was rusty and nothing but blade and nakano and sheath.
  6. Sit down and broke out the old elbow grease, did some image editing, hope this helps.
  7. I'll see if I can get a better pic later. Thanks though, that helps alot
  8. So i grew up with this sword. Even named it kotetsu which apparently means iron.... Any way can some help translate this, I think it's a 45' but there's a small 38 on the spine of the tang and a long signature.
