  1. To me it looks like someone just “customized” the tsuba post war by cutting it down. Just my guess. Tom
  2. Another great score Mike! Tom
  3. Thank you very much for posting this Volker. You do take great photos of an amazing sword! Tom
  4. Thanks Thomas for posting the regulations diagrams. The sonin level swords show a different scabbard fitting pattern i.e. Not a boars eye cutout. The sword pictured also has the correct sonin level colonial knot although it's damaged. In my humble opinion I believe the scabbard is correct. Tom
  5. This is a rare Tsingtao sonin level colonial sword! Tom
  6. I was just visiting the UDT/SEAL museum in Fort Pierce FL. Here is another one of his swords! Sorry for the poor pictures. They were taken with my phone camera in poor lighting and behind a glass case. Tom
  7. Charlie, how can you resist with the tigers all over it! Tom
  8. I believe this was one of those special order items for winter/artic excursions!😉 Tom
  9. I missed out on this one due to the time difference. I also would have bought it immediately! Tom
  10. Hi Neil, it's Tom Foster in New Jersey, USA. Would you consider $1600 for the parade sword?

     Thank you,


  11. Thank you very much Kirill, for now I’m just trying to get an approximate age and not interested in selling. Thank you again for your expertise. Tom
  12. Thank you very much Dwayne and Steve. Would you guys have an approximate time period for this? Tom
  13. I’m hoping for help in determining the approximate age of this tanto. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all very much, Tom
