  1. From what the NCO sword specialists have said it's not worth disassembling these, so I wouldn't really bother with that.
  2. Try @BANGBANGSAN as well.
  3. Another example up for sale: https://www.ebay.com/itm/WWII-Japanese-Army-officer-s-NCO-sword-copper-handle-gold-color-scabbard/233800825702?hash=item366f9d7b66:g:Z-cAAOSwjV9fwvN0
  4. Those dome hangers on a Type 94: https://origami-token.ru/catalog/arkhiv-mechi/katana_fudzivara_masayuki_v_oprave_armeyskogo_mecha_obraztsa_1934_goda/
  5. A few here: http://kajiyahiroshi.com/nihonto/gunto/ka357072/token-ka357072.html

    What have I got ?

    Keep the blade as the Tsunagi....
  7. Looks like the early large Seki stamp that has been, like yours, found on Gendaito.
  8. @b.hennick would you mind taking a picture of the Seki stamp & Nakago?
  9. Hi Jim, I've purchased swords from you a few times and have always been happy with the experience. Good to have you on board!
  10. Pipe scrapers remove excess tar, carbon and other build up from the bowl of a pipe. Japanese tobacco pipes had quite small bowls, I doubt it really is the specific use for it but might be along those lines.
  11. Doubt it would be possible with oil quenching either, even is Tamahagane was used.
  12. Nothing to be concerned about, different methods of gold plating during the war meant different types of wear.
  13. I would also like to source a copy, even without a translation.
