Dear Barry,

    Its we old timers that remember these gentlemen.   Both were of the old School and very knowledgeable.  You must have also known Dean Hartley.    Dean spent a couple of hours with me at The Chicago Sword Show on a one on one while we discussed the Kinmichi Line of Mishina Swordsmiths.   I was much younger back then and somewhat surprised that he would take the time

I remember many good conversations with Herman.


A wonderful Tanto made by Kotani Yasunori from his collection came into my hands


with the help of a friend from germany at that time, thank God.



 In my memory, Herman was an old shool Gemtleman, with  great knowledge!!!
