My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Edit: Just read the new comments. I can try a block of wood. Forgive me for not yet knowing the anatomy of the sword (I have, though, learned a lot the last few days!) but the two piece hatched part above the cross guard is substantially more loose. Could the tang have corroded inside the handle?
Check to make surethere is not a second pin! I concur that a rubber or plastic mallet can be used to dislodge the blade. Old built up rust can at times bind a handle to the nakago. Try the mallet approach without the vice first.

Got it!!! Pictures to follow in a second...
Three peg holes and etching on both sides. Do the 3 peg holes mean this blade has been on a few handles? Let me know if you all need better/different pictures. I attempted to get a close up of the etchings as well as a full tang profile. R/ Dan
I see that the pictures posted horizontal. I took them vertically, I swear! If I need to flip them somehow I will...wanted to update ASAP though!
