  1. brass tsuka is a clear giveaway . its a modern repo
  2. i would say your pretty safe with it being shoshin,. had a few sue kiyomitsu's. the the mei and nakago all are representanive of sue bizen work. and like sukesada, there not exactly a hi market item to fake. whats the blade look like?
  3. this has nothing in common with anthing Japanese imho. just junk
  4. its correct title is "akasaka chic", its soley based on akasaka school tsuba. and theres translations for it
  5. thankyou very much John and Koichi. its much apprectated

  9. that was a nice neat example of a late tompo, sorry for you it didnt sell. i bet the iron rang like a bell
  10. it will be a long time before we will see goodies like these again. two happy parties i think hahhaa
  11. imho, military collectors require mint mounts to move there money hahahahha, gendai collectors are happy to have good gendai in shirasaya. then there are the middle road smiths that are good by gendai ratings but are in average mounts and just dont appeal to either camps. I HAVE sold many goood gendai for fair prices but have sold mint navy showato for more. its a tricky field, still cant beleive daves gens tassels are still for sale.
  12. yeah, theres 2 Gen grade swords with modest values
  13. a very hard to find sword, in respectable condition. you wont see one of those for a while. good piece john
  14. OK, ill stick my head above the pillbox. altho i have never studied this smiths work in hand i have a few issues i would like to raise. firstly the nakagos finished like kawamura Kanenage, yet this smith mei reads watanbe Kanenaga. the mei is alarming and incorrect for this smith signed Noshu Seki. i would say it strongly suggests gimei, but OR COULD be a students work as the mei is rough as guts
  15. love the doco, is that hikaru sulu doing the voice over?
  16. type 32 aka 1899 troopers sword imho. note the cool sun hat for the hourse, good too see hes being sun smart
