  1. Great deal, my very first sword was a hozon ko-mihara katana at $7000. A good yamato den example
  2. Not sure if this has been posted.. Art of the Samurai: Japanese Arms and Armor, 1156–1868 https://resources.metmuseum.org/resources/metpublications/pdf/Art_of_the_Samurai_Japanese_Arms_and_Armor_1156_1868.pdf
  3. Some sold examples of blades made in Oct 1974 . shouldn't be too hard to find https://www.nipponto.co.jp/swords5/KT331403.htm https://kknews.cc/zh-sg/culture/v9k686l.html you can google for 昭和四十九年十月 日本刀 once in a while to see if one pops up
  4. The Yoshioka Ichimonji passed this year's Juyo session, I still plan to sell it, but it won't be available until June 2021 when it is released from NBTHK. Will post again on NMB when the time comes. The Inoue Shinkai wakizashi is still up for sale and I can provide a better discount if anyone is keen.
  5. Not HD..best i could find online is this.. http://www.nona.dti.ne.jp/~sword/katana/masamune.html the Masamune book Brano linked has good pictures in it
  6. I have 2 swords on commission with have used him for other services such as restoration and shinsa. A great guy to work with, top notch service. Can't recommend him enough.
  7. Here's another example i can find of Hirotsuna https://www.e-sword.jp/wakisashi/1610-2024.htm Darcy's Tsubo Nagatsuna is a great Shinto example
  8. Very nice, all the best for the shinsa!
  9. Thanks guys! The Ichimonji i'm selling at the same price I bought it, not including the new polish which was performed by Kenji Mishima sensei. I think i still have the documentation to show for it, but part of me doesn't want to remember the polishing cost
  10. Have consigned two of my swords to Shoubudou to help me sell. Details and high res photos and videos are available in the following links: Tokubetsu Hozon Yoshioka Ichimonji Katana https://www.shoubudou.co.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=157 Tokubetsu Hozon Inoue Shinkai Wakizashi https://www.shoubudou.co.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=158 Feel free to let me know you are interested, I can work on the pricing if keen. Submission to Juyo shinsa can be arranged if required as both swords are in Japan. The submission window for this year's Juyo shinsa is 16th-18th Nov. Will make a donation to the board if it sells to any of board members too, thanks!
  11. I posted some comments on the video last week on proper handling of Japanese swords and tried to get people to find out more correct info on NMB instead. On another video i was told that it's just a piece of metal and it doesn't matter if you handle the blade with your hands. After i directed that person to check out NMB for some beginner handling tips, that person claimed that he has 35 years of sword collecting experience and around 20 Japanese swords. I just hope the antiques can be looked after properly.
