Preferably papered, I'm after a katana made by Musashi Taro Yasukuni, the Shinto smith who studied under Omura Kaboku. With or without koshirae, please contact me if you have such a katana. Many thanks.

Nice sword indeed! Probable that someone has one here on NMB.

Bumping this as the recent technical issue wiped all replies. If anyone spots a katana made by Musashi Taro Yasukuni (with or without koshirae) please let me know. Many thanks.

wakizashi though. I think his blades are fairly popular in Japan. (the sword of the main chara in Sword of Doom, the movie adaptation with Nakadai and Mifune is one of my favourites)

Many thanks Matt. I've tried to contact the vendor. Fingers crossed I get a response and it's available.

Quick update on this. Thanks to Matt's eagle eyes it turned out to be an excellent Musashi Taro Yasukuni wakizashi in shirasaya with NBTHK Tokubetsu Hozon papers. 
 
After a bit of confusion, as the dealer in Japan (understandably) speaks very little English the sword has been secured with the assistance of the very helpful Pablo at Unique Japan and is in the process of making its way to me.
 
This is after around 3 years of searching for a papered sword made by either Omura Kaboku or one of his key students - of which this particular generation Yasukuni most certainly was (thanks here also to Markus Sesko for providing me with invaluable insights into Kaboku's history and apprentices). 
 
Very happy is an understatement.
