Emura call

Recommended Posts

Japanese sword index  has 5 variations of Ohmura mei, so the kanji doesn’t bother me.  The missing second kanji is unique, but I’ve seen things, like kanji out of order on a Mantetsu, and other errors.  Rush to meet high demand forces human error.  
 

I’d have to base the decision on the blade itself.  Does it look like something made by Emura?

It's so hard to judge his work based off of his signature, I've seen multiple signatures that I would have screamed gimei that have been papered to him.

Papered to him?? PAPERED TO HIM?????  Truly, I ask the question, are Emura blades worthy of a paper???  Those I have seen in my time I wouldn't have the gall to take to a Shinsa...

 

BaZZa.

 I had the same argument with Chris Bowen, on this forum.    Chris claimed he had never seen a good Emura.   I said I had seen some very nice ones, including one which I owned.   After some to and froing , Chris concluded the all swords should be judged on their own merit.
