  11. Many Thanx ...problem solved ...and learned a new term in the process
  12. What is the Japanese term for mounted koshirae with a wood blade in place of the iron blade ? and ....what is the term for the wood blade ? Many Thanx ~
  13. As a compass collector for nearly 50 years and a Kodôgu collector for about half as long ..... the Kozuka & the saya compass is a revelation and of interest problem is; when the ko-katana {blade} is in place, or in close proximity, the compass would have a serious error called; deviation Iron {and in some cases pure nickel} causes magnetized iron compass needles to "deflect" and cause a deviation error ... the result being the compass will not work properly, or point to magnetic North ..... and, each compass direction {bearing & heading} will have its own error .... Of the handful of possible compasses errors ...most errors are correctable, but not deviation .... the only way to correct deviation error, is to remove the iron from the proximity of the compass ...from 1 to 5 feet ....depending on the needle - A Brief history of the Compass - 4 BC - China - birthplace of the *compass - not designed for navigation {*Compass; as used in Geomancy, divination, Feng shui} 500 ~ 1173 AD - Middle ages - Geomancers Compass is thought to arrive the Mediterranean via the "Silk Road", Persian Gulf, Arabian Peninsula or India ~ Alternate Route ~ 30 BC - 640 AD - Romans trading with India 1000 AD - Iron needle replaces Magnetite {lodestone; naturally occurring magnet} One end of the iron needle is magnetized using magnetite - that end, will seek magnetic North 1100 AD - compass, as used in navigation Reaches Italy 1187 AD - earliest known reference of the magnetic *compass in Western Europe {*compass; directional, as used in navigation - Land or Sea} Between 500 AD, but before 1100, someone, someplace makes the connection between earths magnetic field, and North South needle alignment {compass as used in navigation} ....that "someplace" is thought to be either the Mediterranean or Middle East 1542 - the Compass {as used in navigation} returns to Japan, after Fernão Mendes Pinto {or} António de Mota - 2 of the first Europeans to land on Japan by sea ...after this time, Japanese compasses resemble European counterparts rashinban - 羅針盤 - Compass; tool for finding direction - Modern Japanese compass points – Post 1868 North - 北 East - 東 South - 南 West - 西 PM me for a copy of earlier Japanese / Chinese Compass Points
