early due to Bay to Breakers)
This month we feature
a special presentation by our own Junichi Gondai;
"Why Warriors Chose Tea: A wrap up of Samurai, tea, swords and tsuba in
pre-modern Japan. "
To help illustrate the talk we invite you to share any Nobuie,
Kaneie, Yamakichibei, Hoan, Higo, or Namban tsuba. For swords we're
looking for Daimyo level blades and fittings. Of course any new
acquisitions are welcome and there will be a fine blade for kantei.
