Oh, and the yin yang symbol is by a kami named Ram. I haven't seen much work from him, but I actually dug up a mini-review that I wrote regarding a 14" Siru back in Feb or 2006. Great khuk. Nice lines, nice temper, nice finish for a villager.
I have no idea, JD. However, if you want a free way to post pics, you might sign up for a photobucket.com account. It's free and you can link your pics from that site to here. I do it all the time.:thumbup:
