  6. Nothing to apologize of, i know those terms could be hard to understand for most, just some things are quite hard to translate since only appear on japanese style blades

Sorry, being primary a japanese sword collector those terms are normal to me, but i didn't realize those are not to all others I added the english for each term on the original post Thank you, i need to think about it originally i wanted to make a simple shirasaya scabbard, but maybe i can try do something more elabored since i also have fun making sword guards

  11. Not the usual item for sale here but Alan said it was fine to post, so here it is. Long original katana (true nihonto) with great all en-suit koshirae (mountings). The age according to my research is around early 19th century because it features the style of old kamakura period blades but the steel is not so old. The hamon is really bright even the polish is a little old, there are some light rust spots but nothing serious. Good blade for both cutting (cause its heavy feeling in hand) and appreciating. If you need more info or pictures fell free to ask. Following the measures: Nagasa (cutting edge): 75.4 cm Sori (curvature): 1.4 cm Motohaba (width at base): 2.9 cm Motokasane (thickness at base): 7 mm Sakihaba (width at point): 1.65 cm Sakikasane (thickness at point): 4.5 mm SOLD
