    New Sword...

    I'm still having problems with my DSL but, I was able to upload a couple of pics of this lovely sword within the last two days.

    It's a very beautiful blade and let see if y'all can guess who made it from the crappy pics for now. I have a lot of closeup pics and full shots of the sword as well. I'll just keep posting them on this thread as I get them uploaded on my site.

    Its been a while since I played this game, lets have some fun ok folks

    Here ya go:






    Hope y'all enjoyed it

    The Bohi is not really Rick's style. Louis's Hada is generally finer than that. The hada really says american to me, but there is no full blade shot to study to the shape better It could very well be a Sadihito with Course grain. Im really mostly guessing not enough pics to read into. Your just teasing us with a Fred chen MA blade aren't you hehe.

    Then that would make it too easy

    Ok Ok, I'll just go ahead and post it I don't know exactly what it says but maybe someone can translate it for me. Guido San, are you around?

    The blade was made by Enomoto Sadahito. I sent the blade to WI to have it professionally polished and have a habaki and shirasaya made as well. According the the guys that work on this beauty, the sunobe might have been made by Sadayoshi (Sadahito's Father) and Sadahito finished it off. I'm not sure about that although, the polisher has been polishing for the Enomoto's for 20 years and is very familiar with their work. So I'm taking his word on that info.



    Here's a of full shot of the blade as well, Sorry again for the crapy pics



    Thanks for playing guys

    Toshihisa is the name that Rick Barrett uses.

    Thanks again Guido San
