  1. This is the unsigned blade... Signed - 27” Unsigned- 27.5” Wakizashi- 19.5”
  2. Hello and thank you for the link… the Kunimitsu is in pretty good condition, as is the other Katana (Without a signature). The only poor condition one is the wakizashi. I’ve added a couple photos of the Kunimitsu blade
  3. I figured it would be a challenge pinning down a date due to the condition of the sword. Thanks Steve for taking the time to answer my questions… David
  4. Hi Steve, Thanks for the translation… would you know an approximate era for each? Second one probably just a guess since a few have that name.
  5. Hello all, I finally made it out to Colorado Springs (Bruce’s neck of the woods). My bother-in-law set out the swords before they left on vacation. I believe 2 of the 3 swords are pre war and very old. The first one I will post appears to be war time (IMO). The nakago looks too clean to be old and the metal appears to be anti rust? 2 out of the 3 swords are signed. Not very easy to get photos of the wakizashi signature. This sword is the worst condition of the three. Hope the photos will be sufficient.
  6. I don’t know if this is worth pursuing or not... as everyone here knows... the nakago will tell the story. Sounds like the seller won’t remove the tsuka. I assume the fittings and saya have value... but the question would be how much is it worth?
  7. Sorry... 2of the same above. These are the only pics
  8. Yes,,, he just wrote back and said he sent the wrong pics. You’re correct Brian it’s the gunto... here’s the pics of the Tachi... not great pics. Looks like a replica blade as stated above.
  9. I think it will clean up nicely... surely not the best example. It has a used look....
  10. Here’s pics of the blade... much better than what I saw in the initial photo. Seller told me he won’t remove the handle due to the age of the blade... I’m heading to see him shortly
  11. The type 98 looks nice! Hahha
