Shobu Zukuri Yasunori (fake?)

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

i got that shobu zukuri Katana that i bought only for the shobu zukuri style.

When i recieved the Katana i had no informations about it and after i was checking it i translate the mei "Yasunori".

After i did some google research i found out many things about yasukuni-to and Yasunori. Now im not sure what to think.

 

Nagasa: 71cm

Nakago: 24cm

Moto haba: 3,26cm

Moto gasane: 0.82cm

saki gasane: 0,6cm

Sori: 1,5cm

 

I have only my phone to take photos, i hope thats ok and you guys can help me :)

The mei looks newly made and not like Yasunori. Is there a big ware on the shape photo? Looks all not legit to me.

Btw the blades reminds me on one we discuss from the seller Komonji on ebay.

Was this sword purchased at auction as a bare blade with no shirasaya, habaki, etc? It seems fairly certain that it is a newly-made sword and I am doubtful that it is of Japanese origin.

Oh, good! Glad it's not just me who thinks there's something out of kilter with this blade. The mei, ana, & the nakago all look...off.

Same mei as the Komonjo ones.

It was only a matter of time before the first blades came to discussion here.

yea ok, i have read now every thread about komonji but the mate who bought it for me got it on ebay from someone like komonji or another account i found him yesterday on ebay "w12w2" or something. (found him in the komonji threads not sure someone said it is another account of komonji).

 

In the threads i found no 100% prove of where they really come from ? 

 

Ok some other questions i have for my Nihonto progress, the hamon and the activitys and hada are real ?

These fakes are generally sold as bare blades which should be a cautionary clue to the uninitiated. Many of them have good gendai swordsmiths names inscribed and the nakagos all look like they were artificially colored by the same hand.

Honestly, whoever made this, Chinese or Japanese, it looks good I think, recent, but good.

Hi, i spend my Free time the last week to Craft a habaki for the Blade. I finished the fitting and just wanna share some pics if thats ok :) ofc i only used traditional tools. (if modern files are traditional :D) 

I used a zink-silver alloy for the welding and had to do it twice after the first one Opend while fitting.

As u can see its a copper Habaki but if im happy with the final result i will gold foil it. :) 

The last step will be the Polish and maybe adding some classic Habaki pattern.

Im not doing anything like that professional and everything i know i learend in books and the Internet and some youtube videos, so i hope its ok and i dont break any rule of nihonto collecting ?

Just wanna post an update :)

I added some stripes and tried to gold foil it but i think that will need some little fixes after i got more gold :D (maybe i will get some real 0,02mm foil instead of the leaf gold in 24karat)

Also i made some more Pictures of the blade i want to share.
