  10. Thanks guys! This sword is conditionally sold pending payment.
  11. Absolutely stunning late Koto Bizen work. A single handed Uchigatana, poplular during this period. Uchigatana was a lighter single handed sword. A steep saki-sori, thin kasane and short nakago made this weapon a ease on the battlefield or in close quarters (indoors). Although this sword is mumei, it is attributed to Katsumitsu of Eisho era, makng this the 5th Generation Katsumitsu. Bizen no Kuni-ju Osafune Jirozaemon no Jo Katsumitsu. Son of 4th generation Ukyo no Suke Katsumitsu. Beautiful ko-mokume hada with ji-nie. Very active gunome-choji hamon with several tobiyaki. Boshi is ko-maru. This sword is completely flawless in every aspect and perfectly preserved. Attributed to a high ranking smith and polished by a high ranking polisher. Perfect example of Sue-Bizen craftsmanship. Nagasa: 61cm Sori: 1.3cm Kasane: 0.8cm (Yokote Kasane: 0.5cm) Mihaba (machi): 3.1cm Mihaba (yokote): 2cm This sword was recently polished by master Togishi Koichi Eto in Japan. It is also accompanied by Kanteisho designated by the NTHK-NPO in Japan. This Uchigatana is currently available for purchase: $9,500 USD Best to reach me by email if interested, thank you.

  14. This daisho is no longer available. I was able to negotiate a trade with a friend! I appreciate all of the inquiries. It was nice to get in touch with a bunch of new collectors anyway. Have a nice weekend gents!
  15. Thank you for the comments guys. Still trying to move these swords along. I've had a ton of inquiries and I appreciate that. Here's a link to my most recent ebay listing. Thanks again. http://m.ebay.ca/itm/Antique-Samurai-Swords-Jumyo-Daisho-Uchigatana-Nihonto-1550-1650-/262485627092?nav=SEARCH.
  16. Ah, it's all good, Hamfish. I forgot to mention before guys. I'm open to trades as well.
  17. Not yet, Hamfish. Quite a bit of interest though. I appreciate all the inquiries so far. Might facilitate a trade, still pending.
  18. Thank you, Hamfish. Here is a link to the ebay listing for the Daisho. Ends in around 12 hours or so. http://m.ebay.ca/itm/262470148603.
  19. Thanks Jean, You bet. The two swords are priced very well. I appreciate all of the emails and interest today. The swords are all packed up and ready to go. I just need a confirmed buyer and we're good to go!
  20. Good morning, Another big price reduction on this pair. $2,395 USD. Best to reach me by email if interested. Thanks. Travisclarke@telus.net
  21. Hey guys. I'm dropping the price of these swords down to $2,800 USD. That should hurry things along I'm sure? Cheers!
  22. Hamfish, I'm also surprised this daisho hasn't sold yet. I thought I priced it well. Ah well, I'm sure they will find a new owner soon.
  23. I thought so too, Joe! I'm shooting for a one day sale on this daisho. I'm sure someone will jump on it!
  24. Hello Gents, I'm offering my Jumyo Daisho for sale. Jumyo comes from a long line of sword smiths based in Mino province working in the Mino Tradition. 1st Generation Jumyo is said to originate from Yamato province, dating back to Einin (1293-1299). Swords from this smith are said to bring good luck and were commonly used as gifts. The workmanship in this daisho looks to be Sue-Koto or early Shinto period work. Irregular Midare, bold Mokume hada in areas. The Boshi is the real stand out. Both swords are ubu and signed "Jumyo". Nagasa: Daito 59.2cm Shoto 42.8cm Both of these swords are of wakizashi length. The daito being just 0.8 cm under katana length. This is a true daisho, not a mixed matched pair of swords. The workmanship and signatures on each sword are the same. They are both stored in high quality shira-saya with horn koiguchi and solid silver two piece habaki. Both swords are in an older state of polish and the shoto has some old oil stains. The daito has also had a small repair on the mune at some point. These swords would benefit greatly from a professional Japanese polish (sashi-komi would be best), new koshirae and papers if one so desired. That was my plan anyway, and still may be. I'm only posting this for sale ad for a few days due to some recent financial strain. If they don't sell in a few days I'm going to take this ad down and gladly keep them. I'm based in Canada. Depending on your location, I can work with the buyer a bit in regards to the shipping cost. A great opportunity to own a true daisho for a fair price. $3,500 USD. Best way to reach me is by email. Thank you. Travisclarke@telus.net
