  1. Thank You Moriyama. This gives me some very important information which is much appreciated. Edward G.
  2. Good morning to all. The attached photos are of a 21 inch cutting edge Wakizashi. The mei is somewhat obscured at the bottom, to me it looks like possibly Ari Tsugu a resident of Bitchu Province? The rest is in the middle is unreadable for me. The only Smith in Hawleys with this name from Bitchu Province is ARI 210 & ARI 211 What are your thoughts? Edward G
