The Help Page

If you need any help with Tadayoshi swords, then send an e-mail to me, with the subject as:-
"Tadayoshi:help"
I will do my best to tell you which Tadayoshi smith you have (without prejudice). This in no way replaces official shinsa services, but it may save you wasting some money and time.
I will need an e-mail scan (JPG,GIF,TIF)/photo/good oshigata of at least 500 DPI quality
which shows individual chisel strokes and filemarks. Some of the gimei are as good as the mainline master's work, and these will probably require shinsa. However, the majority of gimei can be readily distinguished.

To distinguish between the smiths yourself go to the "Art Gallery"  or to the "History" section where there is a small selection of signatures.
