  1. Dear All, I came across this mei on an ebay auction. the large rounded strokes appear different from what i usually see, and so i think it might be creative gimei but maybe it is normal for certain smiths. Anyway, thank you for your teachings PS: I do no wish to flood the msg board with ebay links but i would be happpy to share if someone is interested. best Matthieu

  6. Hello all, My name's Matt, i am a chemistry PhD student at University of Florida. A couple year ago I bought a used version of the Japanese sword by Kanzan Sato.
