  1. Thank you , I do enjoy studying this one slot!
  2. I picked up this Katana signed Bishu Osafune Norimitsu a while ago and always assumed that it is a Gimei due to the lack of Sori/Kanbun style worksmenship. Just would like to get some expert’s consensus on this? Despite it all this actually ends up being one of my favorite sword to study due to the wild activities in the blade.
  3. Absolutely hate to do this but some real life changes has happened since I bought this. very unique sword and i am letting it go. Gunto in late war mount I Mei: Cho shu ju fujiwara Moriyasu Inlay: Meiji Boshin war, for leading troops in attacking the state of Yamashiro, I was awarded this sword by my lord. For peace of the world, I name this sword the sunrise/Akebono Maru, signed MichiSato nagasa is 25 inches, there are scratches and stains throughout the blade but no crack/HAgiri, some scratches at the boshi but they are Scratches only. Ive confirmed with Togishi that it can be polished out. im asking $2000 for this sword, in the short time I’ve been collecting I’ve not had a sword with a story. Name and a previous owner
  4. I paid somewhere north of 2K for this prime example which I felt was fair
  5. Here you go Stephen, my untrained eyes says the lack of Sori puts it somewhere in Kanbun era, Osaka school maybe ?
  6. I’ve always wanted a nice Naval kyu Gunto but ones in mint condition are so few and far in between! thankfully last week I acquired this piece. Absolutely mint Koshaire, Shinto mumei blade in good polish, 25 inches
  7. That is wonderful work Sir! It’s especially helpful now that the city/state of Yamashiro could be identified thanks to your translation
  8. Bruce here is the fittings, very late war and cheaply thrown together. Most likely a family blade donated or sold in the last stage of the war and put into a Gunto mount if you can call it such
  9. Here’s an interesting Gunto in late war mount I just acquired Mei: Cho shu ju fujiwara Moriyasu Inlay: Meiji Boshin war, for leading troops in attacking the state of ??, I was awarded horse and this sword by my lord. For peace of the world, I name this sword the bright Maru, signed Lu Xiang(a Chinese courtesy name)
  10. Thank you very much Bruce, I’m sure like a lot of items I’ve sold over the years I’ll regret it later but the holiday drained a lot of my funds! best
