  1. Hi All, I just cant get these two mei. Is the first one " No "? Many thanks in advance. Mark
  2. Great, Thank you Steve. All the best
  3. Hi All, Hope I've put this in the right section. I'm looking for some help on the red Kanji? please. It's on a black lacquer tanto saya. It looks as if it was added at a later date than the Wisteria Mon that is on the other side. The red Kanji seems not to be the same quality as the gold Wisteria Mon. Any help greatly appreciated.
  4. Thanks all, I shall continue to store them off sword and in the dark. All the best Mark
  5. Hi All, Unsure if this question has been asked before, Apologies if it has. How do you keep your sword tassels safe, Do you leave them on the sword or are they stored elsewhere? Currently I have 6 swords with tassels and I keep the tassels off sword in a ziplock bag attached to the saya ashi. I do this as the swords are not on display and stored in their own sword bag that risks potential tassel damage every time you take the sword from and replace the sword in it's bag. Interested to hear peoples opinions. All the best Mark
