  1. I sure would have loved to have gotten this, sure is a beautiful Sword!!!
  2. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/897119385 Cant see the markings on the blade but first impression is this looks ok, can someone confirm for me? Thanks
  3. Is it just my eyes or is this sword missing the Tsuba that goes between the two sun rayed seppas?
  4. I'm wanting to pick up a NCO 95 for my small collection, goal is to have one of each model then upgrade to nicer ones as I go. Right now I've got one 98 and two type 3s. I'd like to find a 95 that looks likes its been there, nothing in mint condition, but I don't want a rusty pitted blade, I like the stuff that looks used but taken care of if you know what I mean. My budget is under a $1000, would prefer to find one for around 700 if thats not a pipe dream! If your holding something you think I might be interested in let me know. After I find one of these I'll be looking for a nice Kai Gunto. Chris Wilson
  5. Thanks, I check the "For Sale" section here NMB everyday to see if anything I need pops up. I've also seen all the nice fakes that are popping up and there is a good write up someone did here on the 95s that I've read. Most of the fakes I've seen are pretty obvious but some are getting better. Like I said though I'm just wanting one as a good representation.
  6. I've collected WWI and WWII militaria for years, mostly German, I've also collected several Guntos over the years but then would turn around and sell them to get something else I wanted at the time. I'm at a point where I'd like to have a nice representation of each sword, currently I've got a late war 98 and two Type 3s. I'm wanting to get a decent NCO 95 and a nice Kai Gunto, just depends on what I find in the right price range first which brings me to my question. What is a fair price for a NCO 95? Not looking for a copper handled one or mint but nice used been there version. I've looked online an the only place I see them pop up is Ebay and the prices are all over the place. I'm going to a large gunshow this coming weekend and there are always lots of militaria / swords at this particular one so just looking for what will be a fair price if I happen to find one I like. Thanks Chris
  7. I'm wanting a nice navy sword, do you think this one was redone at some point as the tsuba looks old but not of WWII design, and the handle looks strange to me, just wondering what the history of this thing is. Chris
  8. Could some one tell me is this one us legite, I'm wanting to add a NCO to my collection and Ebay is about the only place I ever see them. I've read the thread on here dealing with NCOs and this one looks good to me but want to be sure. Thanks Chris https://www.ebay.com/itm/WWII-Japanese-NCO-Officers-Sword-w-Scabbard-Matching-Numbers/393179799901?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  9. Picked up a late war gunto today, could somebody translate the Mei for me, last pic is writing on bottom of the handle. Thanks! Chris Wilson
  10. Tim I know some people might consider Oklahoma a foreign country but last time I checked we were still pretty much in the middle of the ole U S of A. but I noticed that cutting-edge is also a Chris I'll quit trying to be funny!!!
