The blades look very nice but I guess you should not be putting up commercials on the forum.

Hello JHP.

I know this is a wee bit off topic but thanks very much for your book on "the pattern welded blade"

I purchased this book in 1994 and recieved it just before I moved to Bangkok.

I found it a godsend for the technical information it contained and as the internet was almost nonexistant in New Zealand at the time,it was one of a very few accurate sources of information available at the time.

I have produced a few blades of mid to high laminate count and one katana replica(very expensive to produce).

Thanks very much

Regards John Williams

not to wory..I am very happy that my writings were able to help....

Why the moderator censored my popst when I said NOTHING abouty and sort of "commercial commerce" is beyond me.. This reply to you will be my LAST post to these forums..

All I ever wanted t do was to help those who were interested in reconstructing Japanese blades. NOT ONCE did I say that any of the blades I posted were foir sale as they were research pieces...

So when all is said and one..this will, more likely than not be my last post to these forums.

All I wanted to was to share what my research has shown as far as blade construction..True.I do sell my work, but as I said NOT ONCE did I "go commercial" or even remotely try to "advertise" my work.I have been doing thios for 40 + years and all I wanted toi do was to share what I have have learned in that time so those that follow me would be able to take what I have published ..build upon that and then if so inclined..share what THEY have learned and perfected..

I can take a hint..my posts are no longer wanted here..and I thought the ABS was bad..Oh well..Live and learn, I guess...

No if YOU have any further questions please contact me through my website.(you will need to do a web search on my last name as if i gave you my web site I would be dinged for "advertising" and that is a NO NO on this site even though I am NOT doing that)..

Glad my writings were able to help you..


(just wondering how posting reaserch pieces are "advertising"??)
