Greetings and welcome! i'm very happy to have some contacts here with others Token kai!

 

we talked about your president's swords some months ago here:

http://www.intk-token.it/forum/index.php?showtopic=1932

 

Some of our members are in contact whith him and all really appreciate master Pavel's works

 

Personally I think that he is one of the best swordmaker out from japan. his konie is very good and I've noticed in the later works a big improvement in the jigane quality.

 

Stay in contact and make me know if you want to have translated some articles in forum :ok:

A mukansa ranked master swordsmith in Prague... It was some days earlier than the visit of Kunimasa Matsuba and this was thants to the second Nihonto study group in Czech republic.... Because there is Nihonto Kenkyukai with more than 10 years of tradition and there is the Czecht Token Kai which is new...

Iam really happy to be here.... iam very proud of to be a friend a member of a Token where someone like master Bolf is a president.... his works are better and better over the yars... i saw some of his earliest works and I can tell you that he is very talented.... Even the firt blade was a succes in the case of hamon... Here are some pictures from our meeting from July 2007 i traveled aproximately 500 km to meet him and stay there for 4 magic days full of watching Nihonto videos, swords and so on...

Those topics are old, The first simply say that INTK was preapring the event with master Yoshindo Yoshihara in november 2006.

The second says that we have relesead a video e a collection of picture of the event. If you need it I'll make you know if remains some of it.

 

I think you can be more interested in the next Event on November 2007.

 

INTK has partecipated at the foundation of a new hall in Bargello museum at Firenze, dedicated to Nihontos.

Master Yoshihara will donate to the museum the blade who tempered there last year. In the next days He will lead a workshop for habaki crafting and our president Massimo Rossi with Leon Kapp will do a workshop of introduction in togi.

Thank you very much.... and you are right... Iam much more interested in the actualn event and i will be very glad to see and hear about it. It must be a great honour to meet such an master like Yoshindo san, and as I know Leon Kapp is a friend of Yoshindo san and and translated most of the books from Yoshindo.
