Re: Samurai Sword inscription
Hi .. I have a samurai sword it's not old there is an inscription on the tang , it looks wrong to all the others I have googled in the last 6 mths I showed someone and they said it's a really good replica and the signature makes no sense. but the sword itself looks great . I did find out one symbol is by itself up near the hilt and it is the kanji symbol for bravery or courage , it has a laquer over the signature and all the fittings are cast iron as one fitting is broken , just like some else to look at as the first guy that had a look was just looking for an old sword not a well made one.
