WANTED TO BUY--Military Sword Collections.  Gunto, Showato, Gendaito, NCO, Russo-Japanese, difficult-to-find Daggers, common Arsenal swords. 


Looking for small or large collections. 



Will buy individual swords as well--especially Shin-gunto with rare mounts: all weather mounts, Colonel/Field grade tassels, family mon, etc. 


Yasukuni Shrine, Minatogawa Shine, historic ownership (Admiral, General), special order, slogans and patriotic poems on nagako, swords with documentation/provenance.

I'd hope folks that might have blades available for sale to post in the for sale section, giving members first shot at it, before selling at dealer cost.

Hi Hamfish!  Depends on what a guy has available.  I buy on thin margins if a person has a popular sword or if I need inventory. 


What swords do you have left?
