  1. I honestly have no clue what this is. I was checking african sword knives and such, and saw this, which at first i almost discarded as a cheap souvenir thing, but the blade looked nothing as how the blades on these swords look, in fact it seemed to have the shape of a Japanese blade? shinogi-zukuri. So i asked for more photos close up, and they look ugly. The blade is real filthy and seems to have been used to cut fruit on a backyard. But this aside, the ura side the blade is flat? I have heard of these blades with a flat side, but the are usually on shobu zukuri blades and on the omote side? Seller says he bought it on belgium, In any case its probably nothing but it bugged me a bit so i would like to share this thing and hear some thoughts Cheers
  2. I bought 3 tsuba on march 20 from a ebay seller in Japan, on April 4 he sent the next: Yesterday i contacted him to know if there were updates and told me Japan Post stopped shipping on April 24 and that currently are preparing to ship with UPS and DHL, Another purchase i had no news from the seller so i cancelled and got a refund. Unlucky situation
  3. It's not a real sword, is a movie prop

  8. I will never understand how some people can get rid so easily of family heirlooms, that's a real shame, wish you luck with the search, seems impossible as the identifiers could have been removed with time, but more improbable things have happened, do you have more info on the blade?
  9. The style seems Aizu Shoami, edo period, Some characteristics are the theme, shinmaru gata(round shape), both hitsu ana shaped as kogai-ana, foliage inlaid in shakudo and nunome gold details Here are some examples:
