  1. Thank. I originally thought muromachi but the lack of curvature threw me off. I will take better pictures tomorrow in the daylight.
  2. Thanks for the reply Chris. What looks odd about it?
  3. Is this katana Shin Shinto or older. 30” nagasa. Very tiny kissaki.
  4. Can’t read the whole signature but I think it’s Kunitsugu dated 1848? But can’t make out the first 2 kanji. Any help is appreciated. Thank you
  5. Thank you. Any good books to start with? I have the book “the samurai sword handbook” also the Compton collection, and 2 of the older Hawleys books on sword smiths and a book on tangs and signatures. But I’m really looking for a book that puts everything into perspective as far as dating swords and identifying swords. Basically being able to tell what’s what from looking at a blade.
  6. I’m pretty new to Japanese swords. I’m 35 and just started collecting about a year ago. A lot of this information is new to me. I appreciate everyone’s help. I own a few swords. But there’s so much information I don’t know where to start really.
  7. I’ll add a pic of the NTHK papers.
