This is a top part of a 1.8 i got for a repair not long ago, there is a song engraved in the bamboo, the craftsman must had a very steady hand since the work looks very precise and delicate.

there is no hanko but there is a tiny serial number stamped at the bottom part Shocked ...

can any one translate the song or at least give me a general impression of what it says?

thank you Smile

It is what is said to be what Fuke Zenji said while ringing a bell:

If attacked in the light, I will strike back in the light. If attacked in the dark, I will strike in the dark. If attacked from all quarters, I will strike as a whirlwind does. If attacked from the empty sky, I will thrash with a flail.

I can't read the last line. I can't really read much of it in fact Smile
