  1. Hi, I guess it is from WW II area and the damage seems not from a fight - maybe somebody tried to cut something to see how sharp the blade is (or from Tameshigiri).....
  2. Hello, most probably this smith (from Markus book): KANETSUNE (兼常), Shōwa (昭和, 1926-1989), Gifu – “Kanetsune” (兼常), real name Nishimura Kazufumi (西村一二三), born 1910, he worked as guntō smith
  3. Hi Alex, our famous Nagamitsu: http://www.japaneseswordindex.com/naga.htm Is this blade for sale?
  4. Hello, many thanks for information! Does somebody know or have some information about this smith Yoritaka? thx Klaus
  5. Hello, a well known eBay seller is currently selling a blade signed with: Hattori Tantosho saku 服部鍛刀所作, Hattori Yoritaka kore sotsuba 服部頼隆之埣刃 and dated Showa Jukyu-nen Fujihana tsuki (May,1944) 昭和十九年藤花月 I have no plan to bid on it, I am just curious (even the blade looks not so bad). I can´t find any "Yoritaka". Therefore I would kindly ask if the translation is wrong (but it seems right from my point of view) or if somebody has information about this smith. I am also not sure about his description - it is known that Enomoto Yoshiichi signed signed Sadayoshi and I think sometimes with Yoriyoshi as well, but I can´t find any information that he signed with Yoritaka... but of course I could be wrong. Here the link to the auction: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Japanese-WWll-Army-officers-sword-in-mountings-hand-forged-Hattori-Yoritaka/363211713363?hash=item54911aeb53:g:nWAAAOSwlvpfzuMV Many thanks in advance Klaus
