    My tsubas

    Lucky last ... All of them as basic, not as intricate as others I've seen on this forum.

    My tsubas

    These are some pictures of my Tsubas. ( I purchased from a friend when he moved back to Canada ) . My favorite is the first 1, the design is not intricate rather simplistic but it does have weight and also a raised edge. Not sure if there is a following for tsuba as there are for swords. I've been reading a few topics, and there seems to be a lot of fakes from China, I hope these are not fake. Tsuba 1 - Favourite Tsuba 2 Tsuba 3 Tsuba 4 Tsuba 5
  4. Thanks for the feed back. Looks like I have a lot of reading and learning to do.
  5. hi Rivkin, Thanks for your reply. The length of the kissaki is 3.5 cms . I am amazed how you guys can identify the the maker that lived over 300 years ago. Pic 25 Many thanks tony
  6. hi Ken, Thanks for the reply I did a typo... The entire length of the sword is 33 inches about 83 cms The cutting edge is approx 70cms. tony
  7. Good morning, I spent the weekend reading and absorbing the wealth of information on this forum. It seems that I’ve only scratched the surface. I'll try to describe one of my swords. It's about 33 cms long, there are no markings or signatures. The Yokote is faint but visible. There are numerous fractures along the blade. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. pic 1 pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4 Pic 5 Pic 6 Pic 7 Pic 8 PIc 9 PIc 10 Pic 11 Pic 12 Pic 13 Pic 14 Pic 15 Pic 16 Pic 17 Pic 18 Pic 19 Pic 20 Pic 21 Pic 22 Pic 23 Pic 24 tony

  9. Greetings from Sydney, Australia About 4 years ago I bought 3 swords from a friend who was moving back to Canada, I put them into my brother's garage, and quickly forgot them. Now, my brother is selling his house and I have "rediscovered" my treasures. I found this forum and it seems that i have so much reading and learning to do. Hopefully, one day I can contribute. I'm going to post pics of the "cleanest" sword soon.
