There are no birthdays today
I am looking to shut down this old site that we once was quite active. It's been years since I have posted, and I don't see a need to continue. The last day will probably be this Friday, Dec 22nd, 2023.

I came across the Northern Carlifornia Japanese Sword club (token kai) formed by the renown author of The Samurai Sword -- A Handbook, Jon Yumoto. I noticed in particular how detailed their Visual Glossary is. This is a great resource if you want to know more about the different aspects of the sword, its, manufacture, the different types of design of both the blade and the mountings.
