  1. I know I've been following his ebay page for along time now. From what I've seen, always has really nice Nihonto's with decent price tags.
  2. I recall seeing a member trying to sell a Shinto katana a few weeks ago. He bumped his one ad a few times, everyone was on him for that. Your ads have literally "filled" the forsale section for weeks now. Just found it funny that some can do whatever they want, and others are under strict rules. FYI I'm not saying any of this because your ads are bothering me at all. I'm bothered by the members who feel the need to basically bully new members for no reason at all @PNSSHOGUN.
  3. @Yama Arashi you should definitely try Facebook. I think you'll have alittle better luck on the Facebook Nihonto page.
  4. Definitely a older blade not WW2, may have been shortened at some point. Seems like a good quality set from what I can see in pictures. Suguha hamon is a very sought after hamon.
  5. @vajo I agree, I'm sure slight differences from stamp to stamp is excepted. I'm sure it's not a 100% perfect process every time. But... I'm also a child in this realm so haha.
  6. @Stephen what a shame right, really wanted to see the blade. Judging from the saya I bet it wasn't in all that bad of condition.
  7. @nickm I like it for the right price, looks like daimyou54eb's eBay page? One thing I really like about Japanese sellers, they don't take flattering pictures. From my experience, they usually show up better looking in person.
  8. Thank you Ray for the reply, that's exactly what I'll do then. Edward
  9. Hello gent's, thinking of getting a koshirae made for one of my Gendi. John Tirado came highly recommended, definitely a plus he's in the states. I guess my question is, what does something like this usually cost? Not gonna hold anyone to it, I know there's alot of variables that can come into play. Just curious what a basic Koshirae usually goes for?
  10. ^^ I think Brian had a great idea I personally would love to know the story behind this.
  11. That is way cool hat's off to you, "training" on some wrapping/Menuki I would think to be acceptable. Nothing major is being altered not training on the blade or anything that is costly to change back. Now if your training to polish we will find you hahaha.
  12. I agree I would put myself in the middle as well, in my opinion and of course it just my opinion neither is the wrong way to go. The high end collectors with just a few do have the better Nihonto but the the lower end quantity collectors have more to study so.... To be honest I do like this blade it's not a hidden treasure by no means it seems priced accordingly but then again I'm a young gun in this realm.
  13. Two different types of collectors #1 has a bunch of swords that aren't really anything special but has a decent amount of them. #2 has high end Nihonto but only has a few of them, some of us are quality guys and some of us are quantity guys. So this purchase depends on what kinda of collector you are personally simple as that:).
  14. I find it so interesting to watch a true Togishi at work it's definitely extremely artistic. Just watching that video I can see why he's alittle more $$$ then the rest but I bet it's worth the extra buck.
  15. Thank you Foo Dog, Foo Dog is one of my past customers and our transaction went very well on both sides. So I'm sure he can vouch for my customer services and item description:) so buy with confidence.
