  3. Thank you babu, it's already something, I'm happy with the satsuma rebellion! I didn't about the Maekanagu or tobacco pouch... are they different from menuki? in size, design???
  4. Hi Ken, I didn't know and unfortunatly the sword is not with me for more photos...
  5. Hi guys, Encouraged by your kind responses and expertise, I decided to post the last Japanese sword I have... Again I have no idea about it, it looks old to me but to me old is 19th c... There is a signature but extremely difficult to read I guess? Thank you for your help Kubur
  6. Thanks guys, it's very kind, now I have a lot of good tracks to start!
  7. Hi Guys, I had the bad idea to Google "good books on Japanese swords" and the amount of results/responses was a bit scary. Do you have any recommendations for good books with a lot of pictures, a kind of top ten if you wish. Thank you Warmly Kubur
  8. Thanks all!! Then O-tanto or ko wakizashi? To me it looks more like a short sword than a dagger, but i know knothing about Japanese vocabulary...
  9. Dear Peter, Thank you very much indeed for your very useful message. Yes it's a lovely sword that I got with another sword from Vietnam. In fact I was biding on the vietnamese sword and it was a good surprise when I saw the Japonese tanto(?). Kubur
  10. Hi Guys It's me again. I found another sword, a wakizashi or a tanto, I don't know... The blade is really cool, as the hilt. The tang is signed and I would be very gratefull if someone can help for the translation. And if you have any information about this sword... Thanks Kubur
