  1. I do and I won't let go (unless I get a ridiculous offer haha) - Shodai Tadayoshi o tanto made for Nabeshima Naoshige. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/20503/lot/1186/ 😇 John
  2. Nice Most likely gimei. I hope I am wrong John
  3. 1975, my mistake.. Thank you Plus that one in your example appears to have its nakago altered??? John
  4. I am to venture in a field I don't know much about but own a few.. Kanenao was not a Rikugun Jumei Tosho Or...? John
  5. The glue used originally has nothing to do with glue as we know it. Yes, you can use anything to repair it but I wouldn't. Chemicals might have a negative impact on the blade itself and then some. I think the forum has info on qualified Saya makers within the US. I HIGHLY recommend going that route. John
  6. I doubt a person that hasn't had the 'common level' blades ever would even know what they are looking at/understand it/appreciate it/study it. Now if that's the billionaire club, call ALL dealers and ask them to show you what they have in their 'vaults' (as someone suggested that they have MANY for sale available). Then the blade/s will pick you John
  7. If you are in the Toku Ju market, let me know. John
