Would any one have a type 3 screw any where in their box of spares that I could buy? This sword pictured is OK, but I have another were a peg is inserted in lieu of the screw. Any help would be gratefully received. Neil.

Hey Neil,

The bad news is that type 0 parts are like NCO parts. Few and far between. In both cases it's the screws that are hardest to get. Even if someone gets a 'parts sword' these are typically missing the screw... and only have one per sword anyway!

I've seen calls for these screws on NMB before and I don't think anyone had them. Good luck, I'll keep an eye out for you but I don't hold much hope. You may want to look at a replica.

Oh, there's nothing wrong with pegs either. They're perfectly okay for the type 0.

Thanks Shamsy, took your good advice, and put in a peg. It secures the blade, and works, but would still like a screw. As you can see from photo, the hole is counter sunk requiring a screw to look the part. Until one shows up, the peg will have to suffice. Neil.

I remember those Brian... weren't they listed for something like $100 each? It was crazy expensive... but I still considered one, since it's a case of getting hens teeth when you can. But I don't know if anyone actually did get one...

This is a busy weekend for folks going to San Francisco, but I bet you that Mark Jones has some of these.He is probably traveling right now, but he accumulates such  things and i gave him a couple at the last Chicago show! (In sword collecting as in so many other activities, "timing is everything.").

Neil,
I just learned something today! I'm new to collecting Rinji model gunto (tip-o-the-hat to Nick Komiya!) and have 3 - all missing the lower "peg" but having the upper mekugi. I just assumed the lowere mekugi was missing. When I switched the mekugi to the lower position, the hole in the same' was ugly, it was so large. Now I know why - it was cut for a larger headed screw!

Would you do me a favor and pull one out and give me a good set of pictures? Also, exactly WHAT are the threads imbedded into - the nakago ana? or the tsuka wood?

Ok, learned something more! After examining mine, on two of them, while shining a light throught the mekugi ana, I can see a sheet metal on the other side between the tsuka wood and the ito with a hole for the screw! It's very thin. On the other where where I cannot see it, it's possible it has simply slid down out of view.

 Best photo I could find on my files. Btw they often have one screw and one peg. Lots of variations, and a good search of this site will turn up better pictures and more information.

If you really want, apparently there's a bunch of "screws" on BackPage!

Haha, sorry, couldn't resist. Surely there's a few about, if I see any of my guys at the next gun shows or meetings, Ill ask. Usually they have some obscure parts that they just never sell online.

Hi All, I am glad I got your attention! On removing screws from a couple of complete swords, I noticed two different shapes of screws. Although they are both the same length, and thread type. One has a rounded slotted head, the other a flat head. One has a curved taper, the other a straight taper. See photos for a comparison.

I am after the round head, curved taper. Thanks for all your replies, (a few chuckles amongst them), Neil.

Easy enough to machine if someone has access to a lathe.....and exact dimensions.

Yep, as I look at it, wouldn't be too difficult to machine the curved taper as well on the non fitting straight taper. Neil.

Here's my fix: a brass 10-24 1" screw. I spray painted it with some Japanese helmet color paint.
