  1. Here is a topic post about fine antique sunnobi-tantō (i.e. ko-wakizashi) by Kanefusa. This sword dates from the late Edo Period circa 1840 CE by Kanefusa of Mino Province. The blade shows a nice mixture of clove shaped reciprocal elements (gunome-chōji) temper pattern (hamon) done in a fine (nioi). The forging pattern (jihada) shows a fine random flow of the grain (ko-itame). The sword has an inscription on the scabbard by co-founder of the NBTHK Dr. Kanzan Sato attributing the sword to the 25th generation Kanefusa of Mino Province. The blade has been authenticated and deemed to be of good quality and worthy of historical preservation by the Japanese Society for the Preservation of the Japanese Art Sword (Nihon Bijutsu Token Hozon Kyokai). The dagger is signed Kanefusa (兼房) and authenticated by the NBTHK. The cutting-edge length of the blade (nagasa) measures 12.5 inches (31.8 cm) long. Overall, the condition of the blade is fine, the art polish has only a few very minor scratches. The asking price is $3,000 USD, but I am open to reasonable offers by NMB members. More information and photograms are available on my website here Large Antique Japanese Dagger (Sunnobi-Tantō) by Kanefusa | Rain Dragon Fine Art (raindragonfineartandantiques.com). Thank you and feel free to discuss politely.
  2. Dear all I would like to part with parts of an old yoroi which came as a pair. Description: Suji-bachi kabuto with 52 plates with a matching five part shikoro imitating hon-kozane laced in murasaki and orange odoshi-ito. Both fukigaeshi are missing. It looks like someone has lacquered the bachi with a thick black color. The helmet comes together with a matching yokohagi okegawa-do made from iron. The helmet weighs roundabout 2.6 kilograms and is approximately 17 centimeters high with a diameter (including the shikoro) of about 28 centimeters. The do weighs about 4.2 kilograms and is about 40 centimeters high. Please take a close look at the pictures for the condition. It seems to me like this set is rather old (early Edo or maybe even Momoyama period). The stand is not included. Asking price: EUR 2,600.00 plus actual shipping costs (will be something between EUR 25 and EUR 120 depending on where you are located including an insurance up to an amount of EUR 2000 and tracking) Kind regards Chris
  3. 1 antique Japanese WW2 Yasukuni Shrine sword by Yasushige available. This fine antique Japanese Yasukunito sword would make an important acquisition for any collection. The blade measures 66.8 cm (26 5/16") from blade tip to notch in the blade spine. This sword is mounted in shirasaya. There are no longer any army mounts with this sword. This Yasukunito sword has NBTHK papers already—a nearly $1000 cost (when sent from the U.S. to Japan), and a many months-long process. Condition: This fine Yasukuni Shrine sword is in original, very fine WW2 polish. There are no nicks, and there is no pitting of any kind. In fact, the blade only has a very occasional micro finish scratch. The blade needs no polish, which is a significant savings in time and money as well. $6500 obo

  9. 1 fine NTHK-NPO Goto tosogu wakizashi koshirae available. The owner asked the shinsa group to evaluate the fuchi/kashira. The signed fuchi/kashira were affirmed by the shinsa group to be by Goto Mitsunaga. These tosogu are fine shakudo nanako with gold clan mon. These are exceptional fuchi/kashira. The shakudo horse menuki are beautiful—these may prove to be Goto as well. The koshirae are in such fine condition, that we found it hard to justify removing the menuki to get a look at their backs. This koshirae has a wood tsunagi that was fashioned after the original sword blade. The blade measures 52.4 cm. $3300
  10. No its not like that - i meant the mortgage payment Good day kind gentlemen and ladies, now that I have your attention. I'm happy to report the first topic got some replies and 3 books were sold. Thank you all very much! As i forgot to include a couple items in the first topic here's round 2. Payment can be done by paypal (f&f), or bank. Sold items are shipped from the Netherlands. Prices are listed in euro. Reasonable offers considered. The descriptions are largely written by Grey and are used here with permission. Fortune Telling By Swords by Talbot Clifton 1905 ed. SOLD Axel: I bought this on the forum here, a couple of years ago. This is a really old collectable book in good condition too for the age. It has a really thick kind of paper, unsure what the correct term for that type of paper is - parchment maybe?). 3pc Haynes Index + stand - Japanese Swords Fittings and Associated Artists 1967. SOLD Axel: Everything you need looking up fittings and related arts. Lists (from memory); over 12000 artists. Nihon no Mei Yari Ten. 1967. SOLD Softbound, 8 1/4 x 11 3/4", about 48 pages in Japanese. Japanese spears of many different styles, all important and well photographed. There hasn't been a lot published on this subject. Axel: Everything about yari. I think this is a very cool book, and includes several shapes i never saw anywhere else. Via this forum the index has largely been translated. Shinto Taikan by Iimura. 1976. SOLD Clothbound in 2 volumes, with slipcases, 8 ¾ x 12”, 1,650 pages total in Japanese. This is probably the most thorough reference to swords of the Shinto period. Volume 1 is oshigata and 2 is photos, all very high quality. A great reference for swords of the last 400 years. Axel: 2 Volumes, volume 1 needs some restoration work done by a professional bookbinder (attaching the blocks of pages to the spine, the pages are still attached to each other). Say that costs you a hundred, you still make some:) Unrelated: Colby English Roadmaps 1675, written by John Ogilby (November 1600 – 4 September 1676). This is a very large book that might be interesting for someone based in the UK with an interest in maps, history and/or geography of the area. Couple of copies on Abebooks, listed for less than half that. €150+ shipping cost --> Preview Thank you in advance, Axel

  12. Hi, I am a new member to this forum but have been on other sites/forums, under my same user name, for many years. I am not an avid or very experienced Japanese Sword enthusiast but have always been interested in WW2 era items for collecting. I am listing my WW2 Shin Gunto Japanese Officers Sword here in hopes of selling it to fund some other projects of interest. I purchased this sword many years ago from a fellow WW2 collector and know little about its history or origin other that it was obtained by a returning WW2 soldier in the Pacific. I have several pics to show condition here and will send others if requested. The only issues I see are the obvious 2 dings to the scabbard and one nick to the sword blade. Otherwise it seems pretty decent overall. Please contact me through text or calls at - 309-242-1537 if interested in it. Selling for $1550.00 shipped in the US. Thanks again!

  16. This WW2 officers sword is all about the custom mounts and fittings. Although the blade is a mumei 400-500 year old nihonto, the rarity is the outfit. It is extremely rare to find a sword with blackened fittings, it is very rare to find an Army sword with a shark skin saya, but what are the odds of finding both in one sword? I recon its akin to picking the 6 winning numbers in Lotto! The ancestral blade is in reasonable polish, nice hada and hamon, and a few forging openings common on swords of its age, but as I said, its about the full package. A beautiful original complete 8 seppa set, it is just one of those beautiful original Shin Gunto, that would be a joy to own and display. Putting a price on this would be like pricing the Mona Lisa, or Statue of David, there is nothing to compare it to. So USD2350 including express posting, anywhere, OR a sensible offer.
  17. Kanzan (Hanshan) and Jittoku (Shide) menuki A rare catch. You don’t see those two come up for sale often. Classic interpretation of the famous Zen (Chan) Buddhist monks in miniature. Brilliant work. Mumei Kyo-Kanagushi NBTHK Hozon with translation Price: $1000 May bundle together with the Masaaki's Kanzan and Jittoku kozuka from here Donation to the board is included, everything else is negotiable) And Happy New Year! Cheers!

Price: $450 1.2. Rat, fan and komebukuro/chairebukuro fuchi-kashira Nice work of the Tsuchiya Yasuchika school. Very accurate inlay work. Signed “Yasuchika”, very strong mei typical to first gens. Price: $350 2.1. Plovers and waves tsuba Chidori/plovers are a migratory bird in Japan. They are usually depicted flying over waves. Since they have to overcome high waves and strong winds, they are a symbol of strength and perseverance. Outstanding piece from Mito, fine finish, the birds are very well executed, emotional intensity is conveyed masterfully and very clearly. Mumei Mito, tokukicho paper of a similar tsuba attached for reference. Price: $500 2.2. Plovers and waves fuchi-kashira Very nice fk in the same strong nami chidori motif. Details are very well underlined. Mumei Nara. Price: $300 Donation to the board is included, everything else is negotiable) And Happy New Year! Cheers!
  19. Rarely do you see these for sale, a Japanese WW2 light weight Shin Gunto. Pictured against the regular sword, the light weight sword has everything on a reduced scale, including the rare pierced tsuba. This would suit the Gunto OR Militaria collector, because they are so hard to find, especially a complete original example like this one. It took me years to find this one, and I doubt I will ever find one again. I am reluctantly letting it go, so that I can fund another sword purchase. At USD1850, or sensible offer, I will add a sword bag, and express post it with tracking. This is an opportunity to acquire something special out of the ordinary.

If you have been looking for a set of these books without success, here is a chance to add a set to your library, PRICE: $650.00 for all four books, with the index included. Payment by Paypal ("Friends & Family"), cashier's check, or USPS Postal money order. Buyer pays shipping and any insurance. Thanks for looking. Regards ,Bill E. Sheehan (Yoshimichi)
  21. Dear NMB members: I am offering two (2) unsigned sukashi Japanese arrowheads for sale, individually priced, or as a set. I have had these in my office for years, and I am downsizing, One has a cherry blossom motif , measuring approx. 7" overall, with the arrowhead measuring approx. 2 inches from tip tp shank. The tang measures 5-1/2 inches, and looks full sized. The arrowhead is approx. 7/8 inches at its widest. It looks as if someone cleaned it in the past, but it is still attractive in an arrow rack or display. The other arrowhead has a sukashi boar's eye (heart) over what appears to be possibly a snow flake. It measures approx, 7-3/4 inches overall, with the arrowhead measuring approx. 1-3/4 inches from tip to shank, with the tang measuring 6 inches by itself. The tang looks full. The arrowhead is approx. 15/16ths at its widest.

  22. Hi I have created my second tsuba for sale catalogue with a price listing The link below will enable you to see all the available tsuba https://www.dropbox.com/s/fakjukzmer8vmla/NMB%20listing.pdf?dl=0 Would you please read the first page before you raise any queries Nothing in the PDF is copyrighted so I’m happy for anyone to keep a copy or ideally pass a copy to any other interested friends or clubs Those that remember my 1st sale will see some changes. There are some of the original tsuba available but the price may be slightly reduced and there are quite a few new tsuba When I asked about a Tanaka or Inaba tsuba I was shocked at the prices but this sale will enable me to buy some of these higher end tsuba to improve my collection As usual there will be a donation to the NMB Grev UK
  23. Christmas must be in the air to offer for sale this KAI GUNTO at such a crazy price. A nice blade made by HATTORI MASAHIRO ( I don't know if he was related to HATTORI HANZO, who made the Kill Bill sword, one can only speculate!). The mei from Slough and the sword attached, this is NOT made of rust proof stainless steel. Koshirae is premium ray skin, plus working locking mechanism, and Navy premium sun-ray seppas. The sword did not come with two hangers, as is sometimes the case, but I will throw in a second one if that bothers anyone. Kai Gunto, are not that common, as many went to the bottom of the sea during the war. I will post this express, with tracking included for AUD1400, thats just over a grand US. This is definitely better and probably cheaper than a martial arts sword used for cutting etc, it is genuine WW2 Japanese, and will hold its value.
  24. Over the years these swords have been called, Naval Landing Forces, type 3, type 0, type 44. It is now accepted that the term RS is probably the most accurate. I offer this top example for sale. Close to perfect saya, with war time characters written on it. What makes this example less common, is that it has German Silver Seppas, not the usual dust cover, and a single release button. The handle wrap has a couple of scuffs, but intact and original. Now the good part, the blade. Made by sword smith Yoshitada, dated June 1945, it must be one of the last blades made in the war. Dated, signed, a nice Seki stamp, and beautiful long Nakago. In nice war time polish. At only USD1100, this is a nice WW2 blade and Koshirae outfit.
  25. Dear NMB members: I have recently decided to let a few pieces go from things that I have had a my office. I am starting to work more remotely from home, and I will probably downsize the office. If you haven't decided what to buy yourself for Christmas, maybe this will fit the bill. Here's a chance to get a helmet without bleeding money. I have a 26 or 28 plate Japanese kabuto with inner lining intact, that comes with a killer demon maidate and a hambo, along with a stand (not a Japanese stand). I do not know if the helmet is signed, because I have not opened up the liner since I purchased it, I purchased it in 2015 at the SF Token Kai, and it has been in my office since then. When purchased, the helmet did not have a maidate. The center post that holds the maidate does not have a spring clip, so I have just had the maidate sitting on the center post. I was told the maidate was Edo period and rare. All I know is that it looks great on the helmet, and someone at the show offered me $500 alone to try to buy the maidate from me. The neck piece (shikoro?) has small chips in the lacquer. I will load up a close up photo in the next day or so. The neck piece (shikoro?) is not attached with rivets, but after I purchased it, I bought four helmet rivets from Japan. and I will include those with the sale. There is some lacquer missing in a few other areas The hambo is included with the helmet (not original to the helmet). Overall, a unscrewed with helmet which makes a great display piece, for a price that is below what one has to pay to own an original kabuto. I am going to make it fairly easy to get into this helmet. I am asking (SOLD) net in cash, USPS Money order, cashier's check, or Paypal ("friends and family"...I do not want to pay PayPal fees) Buyer pays shipping and any insurance costs. Alternatively (now well make it harder to resist), I will take $1,500 cash, Paypal, etc., with the same terms as with all cash, and I will ,taking the balance in trade for Japanese blades and weapons, such as hand forged katana (civilian mounts preferred), tanto, jumonji yari, original Japanese sukashi arrowheads,, antique American/English bowie knives, antique Marbles and Russell knives, Moro kris and barong, SA or SS german daggers, Civil War Cavalry sabers, Early US Gold coins, US Morgan silver dollars, and similar such items of interest. If you got into some pieces right, and want to offer such items in part trade for the balance of the helmet purchase price, I am open to considering offers. PM me with what you propose. I will add numerous photos. Thanks for looking. Regards, Bill E. Sheehan Yoshimichi)
