  6. Hi, Well after the death of Prince Philip I was wondering if the British Royal family had any Japanese swords presented to them ,As he was in Tokyo Bay for the surrender and possibly the only Royal there I was wondering if he was presented one there ?or any others that have been given over the years to them? Perhaps they have the Honjo Masamune. I always find this photo of the surrender fascinating Mark

  13. Hi, thanks for the link how do you control humidity and dust etc I had a cabinet built for my other military collectables ,sealing the cabinet unfortunately does not work for some strange reason it still gets dusty and mildew tends to form,I solved it by pumping filterd dehumidified air from the room that in was in ,into the cabinet ie positive air pressure stops dust coming back into the cabinet as long as I change the filter paper[I use cooker hood filter paper] it minimise's the dust problem and no mildew or rust ,only problem it wasn't made for swords and they are rather difficult to get out and non of the glass is wide enough to see them think it's time to build another.

  14. Who is the maker of the Habaki

  19. Hi, Thanks ,reason I went for this one was it was love on first sight the overall sugata the uba Nakago and the kissake the rest was history so to say, supposably bt Kanefuse 5th gen ? did he not change his name the Ujifusa or am I incorrect. What does the paperwork say?will have a look at the Habiki the 2 small knife things appear to be real silver not plated.
