Report broken nakago repair in General Nihonto Related Discussion Posted January 6, 2021 why does that not surprise me? everything is for marketing. either way, i am a fan of jb for metal. the mekugi currently holds it in the tsuka, but i dont swing it about. it will always remain a broken blade. i just like the idea of it being a single piece again. thanks for all the responses so far. thats why i posted here. im 45 but still love to learn. this is my current wall mount idea using just one plank. these are sycamore planks i cut about 5 months ago from a several hundred year old tree in my dads yard. a large branch broke off during a hurricane. i will probably put 100 coats of tung oil on it. maybe then clear plastic hooks to hold the blade. will probably add a mekugi ana to display a mekugi with it.
