Bought with a number of other bits this week, lad wanted me to belive it was a cloth carry cover for a blade but i wasnt having it, still ended up with it so was wondering if anyone had a clue on what it might have been used forthumbsup

Looks like an old golf club bag to me. I see them all the time in Japan; designed to carry a wood. Lots of people practice at the driving range during off- times.

Similar to below, but Iíve seen smaller:

Please forgive my ignorance, but do the Japanese still mark their products with the sakura? My head lives in the WWII era so much, I automatically assumed this was from the war when I saw them on the bottom.

Bruce,


The cherry blossom is still a popular symbol in Japan. Google Image.

Thanks Guy! Makes sense, of course. Sadly, most of what I know of Japanese culture stops about 1950!

Agreed, especially here in Yokosuka. There is almost not a shop or such that doesn't have the Cherry blossom. Of course, their SDF uses it still, so it's not too surprising!
