  1. Hi I hav a nice mint condition takayama sword but the scabbard is split Anyone have and suggestions of where I can get it fixed or find another scabbard
  2. Firstly I would like to apologize for taking so long to get back I had shoulder replacement no fun especially at 71! was asked by uwe what exactly I would like to know? thanks guys for Getting the correct smith’s name I’m concerned concerned that the saya was restored and painted The blade looks almost too nice to be original polish? All it all is it worthy to spend a good chunk of money for repaint and possibly other Being star stamped is a plus

  4. Hi y’all saw this sword that it’s star stamped and nice hamon got my attention Although the scabbard has a makeover not sure if that affects value The wrapping looks cut or missing a piece but if that’s important

  13. I appreciate all help addressing information regarding this sword
  14. I’m not familiar with this expression can you elaborate
  15. Sorry I can’t find any new marks Do you know would go to sell and what price range I’m assuming it’s a smaller group of people that would be interested because of its uniqueness
  16. Very hard to see inside the throat I took the best I could maybe I can see something The blade is easy also back of fuchi nothing does that mean not as rare anymore?
  17. Ok I took pictures of the fuchi and the scabbard throat I cant tell if it is a marking or not Not as clear as yours Maybe you can see something I can’t

  22. Good to know I guess finding the perfect sword is hard to find and probably a lot more money but after reading the thread I’m happy with it I don’t think I could replace it especially having low serial numbers Thanks guys for your help! I wanted to add a few more pictures hopefully u can see the Tsuba
  23. A lot of information to chew on but great info Nice to hear how nice the blade is probably mint under the cosmoline one question hav was I always thought having most of the paint on handle was very important except of course the blade too But it’s nice to hav a mint blade early model nco I will consider offers if anyone is interested Hi can you be more specific regarding your comment above thanks Steve
