Modern Made Sword and Tosogu display

Recommended Posts

Thank you Henry, but I am not sure my work will be in display :oops: For sure Ford's will be and that will pay the cost of the ticket :bowdown:

 

It could be a nice chance to see some beautiful crafted object and swords. I wish I could be there.

I am not senile yet but the exhibition does not start until tomorrow which explains the fact it was closed today. That is what happens when you don't check details properly. I don't know whetehr to laugh or cry

For anyone considering going to this event, there will be demonstrations by craftsmen on the balcony of the museum June 26th and July 10th 1pm – 4:30pm. There will be polishing, saya making, habaki making and tsuba making I believe.

 

I will be there on both days helping out with the polishing demonstrations, though I don’t know if I’ll actually be doing the polishing as I did last year, or just giving English translations, either way it would be good to meet some board members.

 

Also, I’d like to point out that this exhibition isn’t just modern made pieces, you will see great swords from all periods on display submitted for the polishing competition. This year there are many highlights, Rai Kuniyuki, Rai Kunitoshi, Norishige, Ko-bizen Sukekane and many more.

 

So, perhaps I will see some of you Tokyo guys there?
