    Guy has always been quick on the scene and has been an inspiration for me taking baby steps to learn Kanji, as well as Nick and Stu from the forums! Just my humble additions but if you have the Tsuba and Seppa (Crossguard and Spacers) that came with this piece originally,you will likely find them marked with the western numeral equivalents of the painted assembly numbers that are on the tang which appear to be 2, 4, 5, 6. Regards,Geoff

    I finally got the sword in and all the small parts are numbered 1 1 2. Is that correct for this sword?
