  1. The pictures are all "before any work"? I assume any buyer would need current pictures post work.
  2. #1 is an exceptional beauty!
  3. He was selling a couple on FB which is where I did my communication with him but he also sells prints here: https://fineartamerica.com/art/allan+lee
  4. Allan Lee does some nice ones too if your artistically handicapped like myself (sorry for the glare)
  5. My experience a few months back went smoothly but probably because it was just a tanto. I similarly used "9706.00.00" and stated "Japanese antique over 100 years old".

    I am told the above reads "Gyokushiken Yasunori" Couple more examples below: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-Japanese-samurai-sword-tsuba-470146792 https://fudo-myoo.com/en/tsuba/23-tsuba-with-kinko-琴高-and-his-giant-carp.html
  7. Given the current state of things I assume this has been canceled for 2020 correct? Was there a 2019 show?
  8. Only 1 left, those all sure went fast! Great offerings priced to move
  9. Beautiful jihada! Ray, you definitely have a talent for taking pictures and knowing just how to capture the fine details over every square inch. Just wanted to point this out and give credit where I believe we often forget and take for granted, great work!

    Dimensions and pictures of nakago and full bare blade(both sides) please.
  11. I like it regardless, very aesthetically pleasing
  12. Wow great close up shot there! In general, the beauty of martensite doesn't seem to be emphasized enough, would love to see more examples if others can share and make this a show and tell thread. I dont seem to have many shots close up like that focusing on the martensite but here are a couple that I have readily available from my recent Ko-Uda acquisition. Mainly a fine stream of sand. Additional pics available here too: https://imgur.com/gallery/VLFNouU

    No Hitsu Ana

    A few mixed in with my collection, most of which is shown here: https://imgur.com/a/KfgmGY1
  14. Its a soft wood, not sure what it is but nothing special. Allan Lee McKelvy is the artist and they are prints of his hand painted oshigata. I buy directly from him on FB but you can also purchase at Fine art America below. I custom order my frames from Art to Frames too. https://fineartamerica.com/shop/metal+prints/allan+lee https://www.arttoframe.com/?rmsrc=1&channel=google&effort=Brand&rmatt=tsid:1049903|cid:257969082|agid:19246359642|tid:aud-347227194905:kwd-12229092428|crid:288064910786|nw:g|rnd:3444125072397866871|dvc:c|adp:|mt:e|loc:9019609&gclid=CjwKCAjw19z6BRAYEiwAmo64LYlS5lBkjYoRivXW79LJJWamPXqX0ZVW8YYSrgIukW8GiAfQpZ7GexoCDIgQAvD_BwE
