  1. You can see in the picture I posted of the inspection stamps on the mune how nicely the sword fits into the saya without a habaki. It’s a very nice fit without any wiggle. When the tsuka is assembled the whole unit locks up perfectly with the saya again without any play. Bruce, as far as the paint goes, it does look period when you inspect it in hand. IMHO I believe this sword was never issued this late in the war and was taken care of post war. Thanks everyone for a great discussion on these hybrid 95’s. Tom
  2. This is the only one I have Trystan. The other one I posted a few years back is no longer available, but yes it also had no habaki and the extra hole. That one was also mumei with no date or other stamps. Sorry, Tom
  3. I’m wondering Dave if these mounts were all that were available for this smith at this time? Tom
  4. Hi All, the reason I started this thread was because I have a very similar sword by the same smith in duplicate mounts. I just wanted to find out more information about it. To have two swords fabricated by the same smith during the same time frame in duplicate mounts I think is more than a coincidence. I’ll have to attach pictures in separate posts. Thanks Tom
  5. Yes, that’s exactly the sword I am referring to. Thank you all very much for your help. Tom
  6. Since the auction has ended I wanted to post the eBay number 374139642890, and hear what the members think about this item. Thank you all for any information, Tom
  7. It also looks like the scabbard May have be renumbered to match. Tom
  8. Does the mei look funny to anyone or is it just me? Tom

  10. Hi Bruno, here are the pictures you requested. The nagasa is 26.25 inches
  11. Can't wait to see them Mike! Tom
  12. Yes Tbone it turns out this same dirk was already posted. See the thread above posted by Manuel. What goes around comes around! Tom
