Over break, our friend Tom Gibbons built a door around a stained glass window for Andrea and me, in exchange I built new Koshirae (sword fittings) for one of our Japanese Shinshinto era sword blades (circa, 1820). Now we have a beautiful new door, and Tom has his first antique samurai sword - Excellent Trade!
