  3. 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

  7. In the Ohmura Study, he describes a "Late Stage Type"/late war Shin Gunto, with pressed metal fittings, and yellow handle wrap. In Fuller and Gregory, they explain how that late in the war, when the Japanese sword making factories were being bombed, sword makers used what ever fittings they could find to complete officer swords. This is one such example, with a 1944 (Onoki) NORINAGA signed and dated blade in good war time polish. The original fittings are mixed as described by F&G, and to add proof of its war time originality, the sword assembly numbers on the fittings match that on the blade. The tzuka re-wrapped in yellow ito tight and in original design. This sword feels really good in the hand, the locking mechanism works, and is an important piece of Japanese war time sword manufacture. It would make a great military sword study piece, and is also priced to suit the new sword collector. A signed, dated, complete sword doesn't come any cheaper. It could be am entry level sword to get your kid interested, with Hamon, boshi, mei, date.... a lot going for it! At only AUD900 (thats less than USD700!), posted.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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)

  12. Putting up for sale some nice and affordable items. 1. Kanzan (Hanshan) and Jittoku (Shide) kozuka Classic depiction of the famous Zen (Chan) Buddhist monks.

  14. When I started collecting Gunto, I displayed them with sword belts, appropriate to their rank, NCO, field, officer etc, complete with hangers. Thought it may be of interest to post them. A nice part of Japanese history. They are in the for sale section if anyone is interested.
  15. Selling a '98 mounted Gunto, by the famous Showa swordsmith, Isachi Kanehiro. This sword is mounted in an aluminium Saya, with most of its original paint intact, a very rare feature. Don't know if you can tell from the photos, but it has an extra long kisaki. All original fittings, and numbered. Obviously for a war time sword, there is the odd blemish and nick, but has the patina of originality. This is an original war time weapon (captured or surrendered) and has been kept that way for 80 years. So don't expect perfection, it is what it is, a piece of history. Hopefully will continue to be preserved that way. Attached photos tell the story. I am after USD1600 ono, but I am sure I can help with some of the PayPal costs and postage if pushed.
  16. Years ago, I bought this wakizashi as a learning piece for my grandson to gain an interest in nihonto. It has every feature that made it a great starter for a beginner..... Old signed Ubu blade with visible features, Saya with Kurikata, pockets for Kogai and Kogatana, a WW2 hanger, old 2 piece Habaki, and all the fittings complete. I imagined him sitting down with his Kanji book, and sword features book, gaining an interest, so that one day he may take over my collection. NOPE!!! His mother (my daughter) totally canned the idea. So is is for sale, USD 300, plus post. A bargain, sold as is, and hopefully goes to another budding collector, maybe a fantastic Christmas present.

  21. #1 good old authentic 16th 17th C HINENO-ZUNARI style kabuto. don't know a whole lot about it - bought at estate auction here in the Midwest back in the 80's. Silk thread has deteriorated so neckguards are loose but complete- heavy 8 lbs. this is a real samurai head gear - either died from the sword or bow/arrow or a broken neck ! According to booklet by Louis & Kei Chappelear " The Evolution of the Samurai Helmet" old Ieyasu Tokugawa in his youth wore this type kabuto BUT his was a brilliant golden color. asking 850$ #2 32 plate helmet believed to be early-mid Edo period. Again the neckguards are loose as the silk threads have deteriorated. This helmet is also fairly heavy just under 7 lbs. Has the mons on the fukigaeshi. Most all lacquer is gone and light overall oxidation but definitely can be restored or leave it as I have for over 30 yrs. This is what happens when a metal item sits in a Midwest barn with NO humidity control. asking $850 #3 or $1550 for both ! probably list them on ebay tom w
