C107. Pierres et Sabres: Stones and Swords
C107. Pierres et Sabres Stones and Swords by Laurent Milhau. Hardbound, 9 x 11 ¼”, 96 pages, all text in French and English. This book is by far the most thorough treatment in a western language of the art of polishing the Japanese sword. Step by step, in color photography and text, the process of bringing the sword to proper polish is shown and described.
Please note: this book will not teach you what you need to know to polish swords, not even a part of what you need to know. It is impossible to learn this craft from any book or video. Only with a years long apprenticeship with a properly trained polisher can you learn to polish. We already have far too many self taught idiots out there ruining good swords; we don’t need you to join them. Buy this book to appreciate the incredible skill and knowledge necessary to polish, not to learn to polish.
One corner has been lightly bumped; otherwise all is like new. 1 pound, 11 ounces. $75.
