  1. Good day, some time ago I got a tsuba , but what is it. In the very wide rim are visible inlays of silver wire. The tsuba has a weight of 174gr. , the dimensions are 64mm x 69mm, the rim is 12mm wide. What kind of tsuba is this? How old is it approximately? and who made it. Thank you for your help Uwe
  2. Hello to all friends and thanks for your help. I will show the blades to the polisher, maybe he can save something. I think I still make many mistakes on the message board. Computer is not my strong point, I prefer to do Habaki, but I will take care of this site more. Uwe
  3. Hello to all friends and thanks for your help. Of all the parts on the Wakizashi is only the Fuchi signed, are then all parts from the same master? In any case a good buy. I think I still make many mistakes on the message board. Computer is not my strong point, I prefer to do Habaki, but I will take care of this site more. Uwe
  4. I haven't checked in for a long time, I've been working a lot on my house. Now begins again the time for my hobby, Japanese swords and build Habaki. I got 1 Ko- Wakizashi and a Tanto, both in very bad condition but with good tsuba and sword ornament. Now I need help with the translation of the signatures. The tsuba of the wakizashi could be Yamanaka school. The fuchi from the tanto has a signature from Umetada school. Is this Myo Toshi ? Menuki, tsuba, kurikata, sayayiri all match with dragon. Is the signature real ??? Thank you for your help. Uwe Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
  5. I haven't checked in for a long time, I've been working a lot on my house. Now begins again the time for my hobby, Japanese swords and build Habaki. I got 1 Ko- Wakizashi and a Tanto, both in very bad condition but with good tsuba and sword ornament. Now I need help with the translation of the signatures. My literature is not enough to solve the problem. The wakizashi is signed on both sides of the tang and hard to see. Bishu Osafune yu.....The tanto has a hole through the first character.

  6. Hello Sunny , I apologize for not answering your question. I have done a lot on my house in the summer and had no time for my hobby. I will be very happy to make a habaki for your sword. But at the moment only one-piece, the next step is still practicing. For my work I would like to have 180€.

    Sorry again 
    Uwe

      Oohhh 

      hey there 
      thanks for getting back 

      bought handfuls for the right fit so I  am good for now but maybe in time I may need one or someone I know.

  7. I made another habaki for a katana for a customer, I enjoy the work, the result is already quite good. Uwe
  8. I got a very nice kogai and kozuka. Again, I lack the experience to classify the school, you can certainly help me. Shakudo with shishi and waterfall, the kozuka blade with signature and beautiful hamon. I look forward to your answers Uwe
  9. In my first post I wrote that I want to specialize in making habaki. Now I have one ready again. It is a challenge every time, every sword is different, I still have to learn a lot but I am happy about every finished piece. Uwe
  10. The tsuba belongs to a wakizashi. The outfit has the theme of birds. The tsuba is made of shakudo, 7cm diameter, peacocks on a branch of a pine tree, all very nicely finished. Has anyone seen such a work before? Which artist and which school can this work be attributed to? Delicate bird feathers were inlaid in the lacquer of the saya, fuchi and kashira are decorated with a magpie on nanako ground. Uwe Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
  11. Hello, sometimes great wishes come true, my first daisho. Everything fits together well, an identical outfit. The two blades seem to be old, I don't have much experience to judge that yet . A new polish of the blades is certainly no longer possible, the material does not allow it. A nice addition to my collection. Uwe
  12. Hello John, thank you very much for your detailed information. The tsuba was a chance find in an auction and I liked it. I would like to continue with swords that I can afford financially and that are original as far as possible. It is hard to find pieces that have not had some addition, some I have found at auction. I am slowly looking further and am happy about my small collection. I also don't want to commit to a particular period or school. As I wrote in the Habaki , I want to deal mainly with the manufacture. Thanks again for your extensive details. Uwe
  13. Hello Stephen, I tried soot and tape. The first sign is really very hard to read.
  14. Hello, Steven, kanbun, do you think the blade is that old? The chronological classification and the recognition of the school will be a mystery to me for a long time to come. I was glad that I got the sword at an auction. Thanks Uwe
  15. Hello John, thank you very much for the quick reply. Uwe
