New Member Introductions

Dear All,


this is a bit overdo, but here it comes.


To be honest I am doing Kendo for a long time of my life. My teacher from Japan has been collecting nihonto for more than 50 years now and has a big collection including some juyo pieces. During my teachings he always kept teaching me also in the study of nihonto, but I never had a real connection to a sword. Some years ago (I don't know why) it hit me and I started reading, remembering what I was taught and starting to discussing with my teacher.


Now I found this forum and I am very happy to be able to learn and discuss nihonto with so many qualified people. I have much to learn and I have found a real good place to do it.


Thanks, looking forward to this.


Kind Regards

Hi, first post as a new member. Im using an android phone to try reading and posting, which is "fun" so apologies for all the errors i will make due to big fingers and small touch screen buttons. I am a member of The Northern To-Ken Society and am interested in Archaeology, History and much more :)

I have been collecting Gendito's, Menuki, Tsuba and Seppa ;-) for a few years now.

G'day everyone,

Just joined the Nihonto forum. My name is Peter and I'm from Tasmania, Australia. I've been lurking for a few days and gathering some info and realized what a wealth of infomation is available here. Some very knowledgable and didicated people.

I'm not really a Nihonto enthusiast but am trying to gather as much info as I can on a particular sword, as I'm writing a book on my Fathers history. But the more I delve into Nihonto, the more interested I get. Who knows where it will lead.

Thanks in advace for any info and chat we may swap.

Peter C.

Hi all, Time flies it's been three years since I joined this forum and it just struck me I've never properly introduced myself. My name is Daniel Svensson I'm from Sweden and 38 years old. I started out with a Showato a few years ago like so many have done before me. Shortly after I found this Forum and were hooked. During the the past three years I have bought and sold some swords trying to figure out what era etcetera I wanted to collect but also to be able to hold some swords in hand so to speak. I know it's not the best thing to do but here in Sweden it's far and between any genuine Nihonto, and of course a child never do as adviced ;-)

Now I've found my field of collecting wich are WW2 Gendaito and how lucky I am to be able to take part of the knowledge of people like Chris Bowen and George Trotter etcetera. So a big thank you and hello to all the members of this board.

Kind Regards
