  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  12. #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

He is rated ChuJo-Saku and ryo-wazimono (very sharp blades) Source Rating Reference/Page Hawley: SUK720 (80pts) Toko Taikan: ¥5M P. 339 Fujishiro ChuJo saku K614 From Nihon Toko Jiten (Fujishiro): Page 614 SUKEMITSU ROKURÔZAEMONNOJÔ [bUN'AN 1444 BIZEN] CHÛKOTÔ CHÛJÔSAKU He is the son of Toshimitsu, the father Ukyônosuke Katsumitsu and Sakyôshin Munemitsu, he takes Osafune as a place name and was in Oku-gôri Miyuki Mura.

  18. FOR SALE: 1 Japanese WWII gendaito sword available. This sword was made by the 2 Million Yen, Sword Forging Teacher, Kanemichi. This World War 2 Japanese sword would make an important acquisition for any collection. This is early work for Kanemichi. He signed with his first, early signature Kanetoki. This a traditionally-made, water-tempered sword made with tamahagane. The blade measures 26 5/8" (67.6 cm) from the blade tip to the bottom of the notch in the habaki. This fine sword is mounted in shirasaya. At the 1941 Sword Exhibition, Kanemichi was ranked Special Honor Noted Seat--Sword Forging Teacher. John Slough noted in this book: 'His real name is Kojima Tokijiro. Kanemichi was born in July 1902. At first he studied under Kojima Katsumasa who used to be the student of Zenjo Kaneyoshi. Later he became a student of Watanabe Kanenaga. He was a Rikugen Jumei Tosho and had many students.' Condition: The blade is in original polish with only a few scattered small pits. Owing to this sword being an early work of Kanemichi's (having been made roughly 1935-1937), there are two small blisters. The blade is perfectly straight. The hamon/temper line and boshi are perfectly healthy. $2200 obo --Matthew Brice www.StCroixBlades.com
  19. 1 Shinshinto Japanese Samurai katana available. It was carried by Samurai during the late 1700's to early/mid 1800's. The daito was then remounted for carry in World War 2 by an IJA Army Officer. This piece would make a fine acquisition for any collector. This sword is in full polish. The blade was greatly shortened. You can see the original mekugi-ana/tang hole way down at the bottom. About 2 1/2" up from that was where the habaki originally sat. This sword was originally 34" long. The nagasa measures 26 1/2" (67.3 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine. This katana has fine horimono carving. Since this sword was shortened, much of the horimono carving is on the nakago under the tsuka/handle. What a beautiful piece. The reverse side has buddhist characters carved. Condition Full polish. The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy. There are no ware, no fukure, no flaws--of any kind whatsoever, exactly as what is expected of a shinshinto piece. The mounts are nearly perfect. This daito would be so interesting to get papered at shinsa. Thank you. --Matt Brice St. Croix Blades
  20. FLAT DRAGON HORIMONO Japanese Samurai -Antique/Old Nihonto/30+ inches. $5000 obo Description: 1 unusual and collectible Japanese Samurai available. This daito has desirable flat horimono of a dragon. This flat style of horimono is much less common. The work is of a high grade. This traditionally made late 1700’s/early 1800’s A.D. Japanese daito would make an important acquisition for any collection. Measures a long 30 7/8” (78.4 cm) from the tip to the bottom of the notch in the habaki. Mumei. This hamon is suguha/straight with occasional undulating peaks. This daito’s sori/curvature is very slight. I showed this daito to a former board member of the American branch of the NBTHK. He feels this daito is much deserving of a polish—its exceptional horimono work, and unusual length make it deserving of polish. It is a nihonto unlike any other he has seen in 50 years. Condition: No nicks. The area below the shinogi line and above the horimono in the bohi has the very slight tiny surface finish changes associated with 75 years of very slight occasional oxidation. The horimono will not need any polishing. And the other areas mentioned will need only a lighter polish. The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy. There are no blisters. The wood habaki has damage. This daito is a perfect candidate for polish and is much deserving of one. It will paper at shinsa. This daito is a wise investment—it is unusual, it has superior horimono work, and it is of an extraordinary length. Here is the link to the listing--there are lots of photos on the listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/362957313688 --Matthew Brice

  22. This sword was made by Yoshinobu between 1615 and 1624 A.D. This katana is in World War 2 Army mounts. This sword has a silver Samurai family mon. The temper line on this sword is very beautiful. The original Shinsa worksheet is also included with this papered sword. Of special interest on this sword--when the sword was shortened, the original signature was inlayed onto the shortened nakago. Most collectors and dealers will note that most inlayed signatures occur on very nice swords. Condition: The mounts on this sword are in exceptional condition. The blade has three nicks, and only some very occasional shallow surface pitting. This fine sword will polish nicely. $4,500 obo. --Matthew Brice www.StCroixBlades.com
