Hans Koga A good friend in the sword community recently received recognition by the Japanese government for his excellent work. 

Hans Koga (formerly Hans Igelström of Sweden) has been studying the restoration and preservation of Japanese swords since 2008. After moving to Japan in 2011, he studied at a Japanese sword studio in Tokyo before moving to Kumamoto Prefecture in 2015, where he learned the technique of Higo-koshirae. Today, he works as a koshirae craftsman devoted to both production and restoration.
