s-l2900.jpg I just won this on an auction. I have been looking for a brass (copper?) tsuba NCO sword, but they seem to be hard to find in nice condition. As you can see, the tsuka is missing a screw and the tassle hangar loop was, at some point removed and put back in the wrong position (changing that should be easy). Does anyone know where I may find an original replacement screw? I am expecting this to be hard to find.

Hi Corry,

Very nice sword! It's true that nice examples are not so common, but still a few out there, especially with rising prices. Sadly you might struggle with the screw. Bill has been after these for a while. If like me you're a stickler for authentic period pieces, it'll be even harder. I imagine that unless a sword is junked there are no spare screws lying around. Good luck! Oh, you're after a brass screw specifically, but I'd take any you can get.

Shamsy,

 

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I am looking for an original screw for the tsuka. Id'e really hate to put anything else in here, but may have to settle for a reasonable replacement.

Corry,
Try Obiwanknabbe (sp?). I got a a part for my Dad's saya, and he mentioned that he had several parts and pieces of stuff. Worth contacting him, here's a link to send him a message: http://www.militaria...a/nmb/user/2510

Also, I do keep a catalog of all my artifacts in an excel spreadsheet. Any non-original parts/additions to any item are commented and noted and would be disclosed if/when I part with them.  

 

-Cheers!
