  1. Additional comment : The sugata is a text-book example of the Kanbun Shinto form. Very little sori and a short kissaki.
  2. Oops, ....the typo is my fault. Thank you . Sukemune ..... OK, thanks for your help. Maybe someone else with a different idea ?
  3. Hello, I need some help. This the nakago of a little tanto. In my opinion, a work from the Muromachi period. I can read the first three characters : Bishu Osa (fune ?) .......then that was it. No idea what the other characters might mean. Does anyone have any idea what the remaining characters should mean ?
  4. Don't get me wrong......does this koshirae have got papers ? If , yes did the paper say it is a momoyama period pice ? If , not.......... What make you think that this is a orginal from the momoyama period and not a koshirae in the "style " of the momoyama period? It was not so rare that in Shinto and Shin-Shinto times "old-style" koshira were made.
  5. @Jean C. Arthur Oskroba , in Poland is a professional sayashi ? Does he really get a full education and training in Japan from a licend teacher ?
  6. Search out for " Yamatorige". A very famous "Meito". You should also find some better pictures of the original........then you will understand. Manuel was faster.....
  7. Jacques, Thank you for your patience to explain your personal opinion to me.
  8. Thanks Barry , i was not sure if I understand correctly....
  9. My opinion......this is not a early work. The shape doesn't match. And also not a tachi , a katana seems more logical. Looking at the mei and the Hamon ...well, I go for work of Osafune Kiyomitsu . In middle to late Muromachi period you find more than 15 workshops with this signature. Very often they work in Suguha and sometimes they don't look bad at all. I have a Tanto from one of these Kiyomitsu and the quality of the workmanship is not bad, very similar to your katana.
  10. Tsuba arrived today, well packed and as always, it looks better in reality . It was very nice to do business with Christian .
  11. Hallo Herr Malterre,

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
