  1. A mare is looking for a mate. Something that works good with the FK set.
  2. Please, keep us posted
  3. Nice horse set, I got very similar menuki set from Grey earlier this year. Nice to see the FK set to it.
  4. I changed my mind, when looking back at the kissaki on the photos I had I think the right side hamon into boshi follow each other, left side is more "muted" compared to the left side hamon. Hada picture
  5. Hi Tom, the sword is in the hand of the polisher. I hope he will adress all the faults he can find. Great that you point it out, I dont think I noticed it before. I know, gimei will not paper but the overall recomendation on the net looks to send it first for shinsa then if it fails go for a second option. I am reluctant to remove the signature, it looks to have been there for a very long time. Thus removing the signature is like removing the history of the blade but I know fake right, not a good feeling. Ken, yes I know and I have looked. The name that strikes my amatuer brain is Mitsutada. I do think it is a koto blade. Shinto feels wrong again amatuerish knowledge. I hope the polisher can give some information or point in the right way. I need a shirasaya to the blade later, any recomendations in EU? Or maybe UK? My homemade one is not the best after polish. Will try to link photos.
  6. Added some pictures of the Hafa on Tumblr. https://larqurian.tumblr.com/post/629598984357527552/bizen-blade The right side is more varied, and left side muted. Lots of variations... Tadpole hamon? https://larqurian.tumblr.com/post/629598717233774592/blade https://larqurian.tumblr.com/post/629598641659772928/bizen-blade
  7. Update is coming, the blade is in the hands of a polisher now. First reaction, was that the hamon does not reflect Morimitsu but otherwise a high quality blade that deserves a polish. When I get it back I will post update pictures and ask of advice how to proceed to shinsa.
  8. Purchased two blades from him as a new starter. Most probably was quite largely fooled and price inflated in terms of quality. Still they are real blades but what I gather he is not telling all the trues.

    Back from polish

    I like the hamon, what is it called?
  10. Oftopic, but how did you send a request of signature authentication?
  11. I am no expert, and I can only give the advice that I am following with my blades. Keep it as it is, study it under different lights. Learn what you can of the blade. If you Still Love it, start saving up for a polish, then when you have the money take a moment and concider that you probably can buy a better blade in polish for what the polish cost.
  12. Hi Robert, cool I was working as a scientist in Okayama Univ before, did some teaching but mostly to masterstudents. Some day I will have a juyo bizen blade.
  13. Lovely tanto, I wish I could afford it now. Any webpage for your other articles? Strange that I missed antique sword shops when I lived in Japan. Then I thought it was more or less impossible to own and have a sword in Japan. Especially for a foreigner.
  14. Hi, I tried to upload better close up and linking it to imgur. From the mobil camera it looks to be some red marks (rust) in some of the date signs. In real life, it is hard for me to see if it is there or not. Could be a camera artefact. I rather think the cuts are not so deep, and maybe there is a difference between the date side and the signature side in term of confidence?... Shakingness could be my hands Will try to make a better rig to take photos. Cant get the photo to work --- tried both png and jpg on imgur and none worked here.... Post one picture of a fukure? in the bo-hi, is it possible to do something about this? or leave it be and hope for the best that a polish will not open it up? mei https://imgur.com/a/zGJeFb6 blade https://imgur.com/a/hmZ46bL
