Got this off EBay, it’s my first, and I like it. This could be my new hobby.

Xlh1972,

welcome to the NM Board!

Please sign all posts with your first name plus an initial as is requested here.

Congratulations to your sword. Tell us more about it, what it is and why you bought it. Looks like a KUNISADA blade.


Regards,

Jean C.

First, sorry for not signing my post. Yes it is a Kunisada blade. I’ve had a long time interest in antique arms and edged weapons, but this is my first Japanese blade. A friend on another forum steered me to it, and I fell in love with its looks. The gold inlay on the tsuba, really drew my eye. John B.

I’d rather not post the price. I have no idea if that signature is legitimate, I paid what I considered a fair price for a sword I wanted. John B .
