The intention of this project is to provide to those interested
in Nihonto a clean and correct online source of research information.
It is non-commercial in nature, and intended only as a study aid.
Search: each search uses "and" logic with any others that are
entered. For example, if you entered Bizen for province
and Yasumitsu for kaji your results would be all smiths
named Yasumitsu who also worked in Bizen province.
The id field uses Hawley ID codes. The mei and
comments fields will search for matching words within the
signature, and the comments left for the smith. You can use + or
- in front of each word to include or exclude them from the
search. man yen refers to the Japanese valuation in
10,000 yen units.
If kanji are not appearing for you, try this.
