  4. I forgot to update the price on this short sword (wakizashi) in late Edo Period half tachi (han-dachi) style mounts that is part of my super sale to make room for new inventory: Short Sword (wakizashi) in Late Edo Period Style Mounts. I think this sword could have been used by a Samurai's son a for the Boys Day holiday.
  5. Dan, I sent the translation of the NBTHK paper on Sunday. Markus Sesko has just stopped doing freelance translation work like this. I was notified yesterday via his blog site: (https://markussesko.com/). Here is just a quick notice about the September 2020 update of my websites.

  6. Hello Dan, Markus Sesko charges money for this translations, I think about $15.00 USD for a old NBTHK Kicho (white) paper. I can go it on the weekend during my free time free of charge, but will generally take longer then Markus.
  7. This has really depressed me and I have considered stop collecting Japanese swords. He passed away just before my birthday and I learned about it on my birthday. My last interaction with Kunio-sensei was in January of this year when I participated in kantei session at the regular club meeting. I scored my first Atari (当) and I was very happy and proud of my work. I knew the answer because I once had a tanto that a previous owner had attributed to Atawaguchi-Yoshimitsu. Here is also a photo of the middle Muromachi Period, Yakuōji Yoshimitsu Tanto (薬王寺吉光短刀) that lead me to do the research necessary to get the atari score at kantei. Little did I know this would be my last interaction with him. I feel very sad. I am sure people here will likely make fun of my post and its typos, but life is a very precious thing and I could careless of the peanut gallery opinion of me.

  13. I have decided not to go. I have just cancelled everything in regards to the San Francisco Show 2020. Hope to be at the show next year.
  14. I sent a email off to Grey seeking a tsuba box and apologizing for not having the money to purchased a Satsuma reference book like I talked earlier about with him. I also randomly asking if he will go to the San Fransico show not having read his post. Since my very first show Tampa 2011 Grey has been there. I have a table reversed, flight booked, hotel reversed, and vacation time saved up from the day job. Right now not sure if I will go. COVID-19 cases are now spiking in California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona. I feel sad.
