Sweet - I got ripped off!

I was looking through the sword buyers guide and I found one of my calligraphy pieces plastered on an image of a sword they are trying to sell. Sweet! That makes me famous in my own mind! It must have gotten on the internet when I sold that image to a t-shirt company to use about 7 years ago, but it is still strange to see a piece of calligraphy that was on my kitchen wall when I am shopping for swords. Small world. Apparently after a search that company is'nt making t-shirts anymore. Whoever Photoshopped it smudged my signature though.

Hint hint - maybe Sword Buyers Guide will want to give me discount - Hint hint - I am looking to buy a Cheness Kaze - Hint hint.



SBG with the advert



It has been a while since I have seen this image. My signature looks funny. The t-shirt company added the 'spirit' to the kami character. I would not have translated like that.

  1. I hope you get a good discount! How would you translate these characters? I'm curious what it represents.
