  1. To show what kind of cut was done. Karigane (wildgans in German)
  2. Correct ! He also write the book Nihon-Shinto-Shi.
  3. Sorry , but it is written in NIHON SHINSHINTO SHI (Markus Sesko) that he never temper "O" - Choji - midare in Ichimonji Style. I point out : O-Choji . Sometimes you see a Choji-midare with higher elements...(see the picture from the shin shinto taikan)....but this is not the O-Choji-midare from the Ichimonji school. @BIG For me is Markus correct with his Statement that Naotane never temper a O-Choji-midare in Ichimonji Style.........or can you show me a Naotane blade with a O-Choji-Midare Hamon ?

    Is this a Set ?

    What makes you think that the fuchi / kashira are Higo ?
  5. The award for idiot of the year goes to...........
  6. Kamakura ? Nice to see a untouched pice. Congratulations
  7. What i can see on the pictures is that the hamon end at the ha-machi ! It does not run into the nakago ! The nakago show the signs of a suriage , or better o-suriage ! If the Hamon is original to the suriage the hamon should run into the nakago! Sorry , I don't want to open a tin of worms here , but for me this is a old blade with a new yaki-ire , or better a saiha (rehardening) This is also a explanation for the unusual strong sori. If the man who make the saiha does not correct the shape of the old blade before the rehardening the sori become very strong like in this blade. It make no sense for me to give a kantei on saiha blade . This are just my two cent.......
  8. Get my tsuba today, well packed....everything went nice and smooth . It was a pleasure to do business with.
  9. Message for Nr 5 send.
  10. And he is not the only one ! If there are buyers who pay for it ...........he did everything right. 👏
  11. Dear Members of the NBTHK , I hope everyone is still healthy and had a nice Christmas, even under this unhappy circumstances. Please don't forget to send an answer to the last , in my opinion enjoyable, shijo kantei ! I had send my answer this morning.

    The weight of History

    Never buy a story............and I agree with Curran . This tsuba is a bad joke. With this in mind the price of this " Arrangement " is not acceptable.
  13. Interesting to see that there was also a non Japanese polisher in the contest. Hendrik Lindelauf , does someone have more information about him ?
  14. If the weather condition are good you need no Mikroskop to study snow crystals.
