    Specialist of japanese sword fittings.
  1. Thank you Toryu for your answer. If I can do more pictures, I will upload it here Regards,
  2. So, my friend said to me that the sword was offered to his family before 1920 (maybe 1900-1910), and he said to me that the source was probably the Imperial family... but it seems to be surprising because the work is 19th. Do you know if some "ancient sword's copies" of the 19th could have a certain value ?
  3. I found this link on ncjsc about Nagayoshi http://www.ncjsc.org/article_chogi.htm
  4. The blade (even with some scratches) and the fittings are well preserved. My first impression was : 19th, but the work is really good (the carvings and the decoration of the saya are beautiful). I thought that the "copies" made during the Showa period had a "too fresh" aspect with the carvings not so perfect.

  8. Hello, I am Luc. I am a french specialist of sword fittings (a tsuba lover... ). I lived @Nogent-sur-Marne near Paris. (Bonjour Jean ). I follow the forum since a long time ago but I was not registered. So the time is coming ! I hope that I could help the community to study the Japanese swords and fittings ! Regards, Luc
  9. Hello, I have discovered in a friend house of my father a beautiful sword, he asked me to give him some informations but I am not a sword's specialist (I am a french specialist of tosogu and tsuba). I have tried to translate the mei but I don't understand it. So, I hope that you could help me For information : this sword was offered to my friend family by a rich Japanese family (I do not have more informations), but the mon seems to be the goshichi no kiri > represented on the saya and the kodogu wich are very very good. The sword is long (more than 60 cm, but I think it is a katana), some scratches but well preserved. I thank you in advance for your help !
