  1. Thank you very much for the information
  2. Thank you very much for the information. Can you explain to me the "15 points", is it some kind of rating system of the smiths?
  3. Hello to everyone. I am thinking of buying my first Japanese sword. The problem is that I am an absolute beginner when it comes to knowledge about Japanese swords. I have been collecting blades for a very long time, but I have never owned a Japanese traditionally made one. The information I have is very little because I will see the blade in a couple of days, but I wanted to get some information about it if I can before that. It is a middle-sized wakizashi from the Edo period. The owner says it was sighed Echino Maeshu but I can't find anything about the sword smith at sho-shin.com or anywhere else. Does anyone know anything about this sword smith? The blade comes in a shirasaya and it has a passport no NBTHK certificate. It has a handle, guard and a sheath . Also the owner said it has a wooden replica sword and a talisman (not sure what that is ?) I will attach a couple of bad pictures that I have of the blade any information is much appreciated. Thank you Mihail
