Morning all,

What are the professional Saya - shi preferred methods of repair for a Koiguchi that has become loose due to use in Iai & Batto training?

Cheers

Malcolm

Thin wood gluing to MUNE-KATA.
The SAYA cracks if it pastes it to both sides.
I'm sorry by poor English.

Good morning Kensen san

Thank you for the excellent illustrations and explanation.

May I ask what is the preferred wood for such a repair?

Would I be correct in assuming that Sokui Rice paste glue would be used to fix the thin veneers of timber?

Cheers

Malcolm

You are correct.

Thank you Kensen san for sharing your knowledge, it is much appreciated.

Would I be correct to translate Hou 朴の木 as Magnolia?

Cheers

Malcolm
