    Quote by Chris Bowen
    [SIZE=3]Nihon To Tanren Denshujo [日本鍛練伝習場]
    was located in Akasaka, Hikawa-cho,
    on the grounds of the estate of Kurihara Hikosaburo, who was a
    member of the National Diet, as well as an amateur swordsmith.
    He had a deep interest in nihonto from an early age, and after
    several attempts, finally secured enough financial backing to
    open the Denshujo on July 5, Showa 8. In Showa 16, for a
    variety of reasons, the school closed and a new academy, the
    Nihon To Gakuin, was opened on the grounds of the Imperial
    Army's facility in Zama (Sobudai), Kanagawa Prefecture. The
    following smiths are associated with the Denshujo and/or the
    Gakuin. Full-time smiths were all given the meiji 'Aki' (昭)
    by Akihide

    Chris further says: "...In Showa 16, for a

    Wish I had known that in 1990. I was stationed at Camp Zama and my office was in an old kendo dojo on the south camp where the foreign officer candidates trained. Sobudai was the Japanese Army Officer Academy, nicknamed "Sobudai."

    Looks like the tsuba has been put back on the sword upside down and it is missing a couple of seppa also .

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...
