Dear NMB Members:
Yoshimichi Collectors. I am going to be listing a signed Tamba no kami Yoshimichi kogatana with what looks like sudare-ba and kikusui floating on water hamon for sale on Ebay, but I want to give NMB members first shot before doing so. Most Yoshimichi blades we encounter seem to be wakizashis, so if you have one with koshirae and need a Yoshimichi kogatana to round it out, here you go. The mei is very light, but you can make out the kanji in the light. My pictures are pretty poor of the mei, but it is there. The kogatana is in decent polish with a floating kikusui in the hamon. It comes with an iron kozuka with some surface rust wirh a gold metal cat playing with maybe a yarn motif. It looks like part of the metal on the yarn ball is missing. I will throw in the kozuka box with the deal.
PRICE: $425.00 net to me, payable by Paypal ("friends"), plus buyer pays shipping and insurance costs.
I also have a set of cat menuki with a similar motif with a padded box. These are small and appear to be tanto size. They look like shibuichi and gold.They are in useable condition and would look nice on a tanto.
PRICE: $175.00 net to me, payable by Paypal ("friends"), plus buyer pays shipping and insurance costs.
If someone wants both items, the package price is $575 net to me, payable by Paypal ("friends"), plus buyer pays shipping and insurance costs.
If you have any questions, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through NMB. Thanks for looking.
