  1. Yes, sorry, original listing. Listing says kanetomo ! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ANTIQUE-NIHONTO-Japanese-KATANA-SWORD-WAKIZASHI-KANETOMO-signed-SHIRASAYA-NR-/255568369627?hash=item3b810fd7db%3Ag%3AIMoAAOSwxvNiKe7T&nma=true&si=tKcsrlkBXBrWpOnAzePV%2BoHLsdU%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  2. According to the listing muromachi period. Probably sengoku mid 1500’s.
  3. Looks a little like pacific island native wooden club, aboriginal club !
  4. Might be a willy jeep spring ! I have seen a few over the years !
  5. I had one of these that i regret selling. He was a RJT smith during the war.
  6. This is my komonjo signed akihiro with really nice mounts for a decent price. I’m very happy with it.
  7. Yes, my brother got a very nice gendai masakatsu 1.5m smith and a kunimori (yasuhiro 1.8m smith) for what I reckon is a good price. I missed on the ones I was interested in.

    Hada question

    Hi all. Who or possibly which school may have been responsible for this hada ? Who does it remind you of ?
  11. Neill, Question about the “leather covered saya normally for older blades”? Can you elaborate on this please ? Also, how rare/uncommon are the pierced tsuba/seppa set on these rigs ? chris.
  12. With an older blade. Full leather covered with leather snap lock and pierced tsuba.
  13. That red dust gets everywhere. I was there in 2013 and I’m still cleaning it out of my ute, nose and ears !
  14. Have you considered having it submitted for Tokubetsu Hozon whilst it is still in Japan ? It is considerably easier while it is still in country !
