  1. Very nice piece ...good eye and purchase
  2. He is old and stressed out. Times where different in his past. Your word and fist was valued most in his days. Please cut him some slack for the sake of his collection and passion for a hobby. Imagine all the people who messaged him who weren't even serious and said some sideways stupid sh*t just to poke at him. He has a lot of orders and I can only imagine wanting everything to be sent out right and on time.
  3. Please give me some time I'll send you a PM for your help. It may be for sale in a while. I'm very thankful for your fast response and direction. It means a lot to me.
  4. This mei is from a Motohira blade with an amazing Suguha and morning fog raising in the horizon hamon that he was known for. Can someone please help me with confirmation of the date? I thinking late Edo or early 1800’s ? thanks again
  5. Most epic ..... Thanks so much SteveM. for adding some information. There is a long line of other inserted gold kanji I'm not aware of plus a well known cutters name and a kao at the bottom. I've very glad that I bought this blade now.
  6. OOHHHHH ..lol awesome ...I thought I was jumping the gun....first I read it as 3 and then 3 but I thought ...I've never seen that many on a sword so it must only be 3 bodies at the most. So 3 and then 2 ...I'm so happy. Thanks so much again Mr. Singer. You've been a great help. I'm very happy.
  7. Thanks 🙏 😊 so much Ray for the fast response It’s greatly appreciated I was to understand this is a 3 body cutting test ? Am I correct ? No one wants to ship the Tameshigiri mei identification book selling on eBay at the moment to Canada for some strange reason so I’m in the dark stuck with the little information on the internet from swords sold and their descriptions
  8. Looks neat nice share I like the hamon and saya too
  9. 👋 hello can someone please help me with the date from the kanji on the left opposite of the gold cutting test kanji thanks so much for your time and help
  10. I was born in Saint Pauls. Grew up on Hastings St. in East Vancouver. This mei was on it's own on one side of the tang. The opposite side has the owners name and below is the Hizen mei. Cheers
  11. Cool thanks so much for your help and time. This kanji was by itself opposite of left side of mei of the owners name above the makers mei that is on a Hizen blade. Cheers
  12. This is a more than fair price i wouldn’t go any lower if you can help it brother It’s a tough crowd sometimes but keep the faith.
  13. 👋 hello I really need help with this translation This is on a long wakizashi where a date usually is but it looks short to be a date ? Thanks 😊 🙏 so much for viewing to help.
  14. Dear Ron, I really appreciate your reply and I trust your judgement. It's still a very nice piece and the price is more than fair however I'm really looking for something to wear. It will find a good home soon that I'm sure of. Cheers
  15. Hello I'm 6"2 and shoulders are a little over 2 feet wide. My suit jacket is 42 L My waist is 32-33 Do you think it would fit ? It's very lovely.
  16. Congratulations on your success and great taste. The hamon on the top of three of the 9th uploaded photo is amazing. What a beautiful sword. The wood earth tones, dark steel industrial framing and bold colours of your interior decoration is very well done and shows great class. Hopefully before I pass in my game of catch up with everyone I can have a tenth of the success and you have. Wishing you a continued path of greatness and thanks for sharing.
  17. No....I didn't ....because I never got any notifications from you due to you not messaging or quoting the comment. Everything I have for sale is gone now as of 6 AM this morning.
  18. This sword was gone ages ago.....it's better to directly message someone on their profile page. Also if you don't quote their message they get no notification thus they don't see it. I have 2 other WW2 koshirae fitted swords that are older true nihonto. One with all the matching numbers for fittings and a family mon. The other a shortened tachi mei of very high quality. PM/DM me after clicking on my icon if interested.
  19. I love this piece. Very high quality. I had one by the same maker with a moon and a sun ? Or two moons ? Had almost the identical landscape. The quality wasn't as clean as this one though. I give this piece a 10 out of 10.
  20. Good thing I read all the way of what Brian had to say. I was just about to click buy on something cheap enough to risk. It'a a shame about so many scammers taking advantage of this hobby. They have a tsuba with an unknown signature on there for about $30 that was knocked off from $200 that's worth almost a grand if legit. Darn....when it's too good to be true...it usually is ....unless you're holding the item for sale in your hands and you have one of those fluke days. Had one last year....asked the guy if the tachi had a signature and he checked and said no. A bring back from an American soldier that moved to Canada and started a family. Sure enough the $350 CAN sword had a single kanji signature from the late 1300's. Looked like it was sitting in the bottom of a lake till now though but showed promise for restoration. None the less another I regret letting go to pursue others. Thanks for the heads up fellow ronin
  21. That hamon is a show stopper and the polishing job is legendary. I can only dream of holding this blade.

    Fake patina?

    It looks to be that they went heavy with an abrasive high grain wet sand till they got to a point to then change to a 2000 wet dry that had a red grit instead of dark grey and they hand buffed the rest of the rust and the colour of the grit into the actual iron itself. That's why the inside still looks to have a normal texture of decay and rust age with a bit of the original iron colour peeking out. I think this piece is legit. They just messed the top layer of iron. Or I could be completely mistaken. I happen to really suck with my judgement lately.

  24. Looks to me like someone used a small thin flathead and a hammer to pop a habaki off that was stuck. It bumped/slipped and went high due to being a very thin sharp tipped flathead but still caught pushing some of the metal forward. Or i could be very wrong.
