  8. Thank you! I just applied some Choiji oil after I took these photos. I am looking at cleaning up the Tsuba right now with ivory possibly. Thank you.
  9. Hello, My grandfather passed this year and I received this sword from him. I think it's a kanmuri-otoshi Shinshinto blade, is this correct? (Based off of information I got via Facebook) But I am wondering how I can tell from what period the sword is from. what do you think? The blade itself measures about 14 inches. Thanks -Ozymay (Jeff)
  10. Hi Grey, name is Jeff but ozymay is my online user name. Thanks for the information. I was given it recently as a gift, so I was curious about it Oh Nice, I am in central Minnesota near the Brainerd Lakes area. -Jeff (ozymay)
  11. I recently acquired this and still am learning about Japanese weapons myself. To me it looks like a Kaiken or Tanto with a brass casing on it and possibly the Tokugawa family crest. Any ideas on how to remove the handle casing to see a signature? Or even an idea on how old it could be? Thanks -ozymay
