  1. 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
  2. Charlie, how can you resist with the tigers all over it! Tom
  3. I believe this was one of those special order items for winter/artic excursions!😉 Tom
  4. I missed out on this one due to the time difference. I also would have bought it immediately! Tom
  5. Hi Neil, it's Tom Foster in New Jersey, USA. Would you consider $1600 for the parade sword?

     Thank you,


  6. 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
  7. Thank you very much Dwayne and Steve. Would you guys have an approximate time period for this? Tom
  8. 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
  9. I agree with Chris, the tang definitely looks like it was welded from another sword. Tom
  10. I bought a copy also. Tom
  11. Thank you very much Thomas for this information! Tom
  12. Here’s some pictures of a Murata that I picked up several years ago. I know bad polish! Tom
  13. Yes, John, there is a nice star stamped gendaito by Kaneshige. 1944 Tom
  14. Here you go Bruce, mon on a Rinji-seishiki. Tom
  15. It actually looks like one of the Chinese reproduction swords to me. I would walk away! Tom
  16. Thank you both for your help. The pictured dirk by Ohmura looks to me to have the same backstrap/pommel as the forestry dirk. The dirk that Jareth posted is definitely different. The post by Nick is excellent! Thanks again, Tom
  17. Hi Bruce, Yes, the forestry dirks you pictured look just like the Cadet dirk that Ohmura has pictured. Is it possible that Ohmura is mistaken or are they extremely similar? Inquiring minds would like to know! Thank you all very much, Tom
  18. Hi All, I was looking at Ohmura’s website and he has this listed as a naval cadet’s dirk. I always thought this was a forestry dirk. Can someone please help explain what is correct? Thank you very much for any clarification. Tom
  19. Hi Ray I will take this. Thanks Tom
  20. Here are the pictures as requested Neil. Tom
  21. Here’s one with the mon integral with the backstrap. Tom
