  1. oh yeah, thats REALLY nice type 94 john. that gets me all warm and wet on the inside
  2. out of all the swords that have sold on the nmb, why is this still hear?? great value for money
  3. The very fact that a KO scabbard is matched to a otsu numerically imho is concering. the sword isnt dated so imho forget placing any value in the number. keep searching for a matched and dated sword in far better example, there are examples numbered under 10,000 out there. the over riding serial numbers cause confusion. so look for dated example, if your lucky you can find examples dated to the month
  4. Buying from the photographs they had taken was a big gamble imho
  5. words for the welcome. Barry always adds to the conversation with insight and wisdom
  6. i was the officer in command of a high security unit for 3 years, and escorted some of the states worst exapmles of peaple
  7. everything listed is in bad shape, with poor photos and evan worse desciptions. i was going to look on behalf of a buyer but evan inspections are on request and you must pay for the right. veiwing times are so short its not worth time. 3 mins per item
  8. sorry that was a bad joke, i worked in a high security prison for soem years. maybe should have put a hahahhaha face
  9. what a steal, i wish i had the money. i have bought from Neil twice and his swords are always better then shown
  10. becasue of the split handle, chipped blade and repainted saya !!
  11. Mumei seki-to But i would say it looks water quenched. Any hada??
  12. very cool, apost war export type 32. heaps of writting about them and finally the photos. 100%real and a gem to boot
  13. no paperwork imho is a issue. oral histoies are affected just like the game chinese whispers
  14. althought it shows clear hada, small sunagushi.... its still a showato "oilie" the dark peaks give it away regardless of the skill of the togi.. A well polished, well made showato but imho not worth the 350k yen
  15. is that a thing? hahaha next question, HADORI or sashikomi hahahahahahahaha
  16. Postage it a REAL ISSUE, i had a rare sake cup in Japan. The cost to ship/post was so high i literally walked away and left the money to the seller. The world has gone made
  17. tassel and knots are not pricey compared to the sword you buy. company grade stuff is normally under 150 for neat stuff. just ask for some and members here will happily point you in right dirrection
  18. and if you read the book, correctly it says some types were modifies type 8s the checkering at the base is a trait of type type 19s so which come first ?
  19. that is just 1 example "shape" you looking at. remember theres multipule maunfacturs. type 8's as a whole have no decoration on the backstrap and a solid "underorated Dgourd" type 19s have both decorated backstraps and decorated D gourds
