I thought Koto was just a manufacturor from various little forges in China? I cant see any website for them?

geordie
its one manufacturer making the same gear
for a couple of different brand names thats why
theres a lot of similarities with koto and ryumon
both use the same booklet both have similar katanas
with minor differences in fittings actually you would
be supprised how many well known different brand names
this manufacturer supplies with virtually identical pieces
but with minor differences ryumon masahiro kawashima koto etc
theres more i just cant remember them all

Hmm, not sure, try using the powder ball from the maintenance kit, you just dab it on the blade and rub it off with a cloth, see if that fixes it.

You can get the photobucket app for andriods, makes it so simple to take the pic, and upload it on the same device :mrgreen:

Look on your email and see.

Its not that I cant take pictures its that I cant copy links, to open a link a touch it, to copy a link I hold my finger down until it automatically highlights, for some reason it wil never do that for image links it just opens them in another window.

I keep wiping it with a muslin square and I think its fading, hard to tell the lights sh*t in here
