  1. I offer for sale, a Spring 1943 Koa Isshin WW2 officer sword. They are rarely found in the original leather combat covers these days, which I have left on to preserve its originality. I have slightly peeled back the leather, and looks like the painted metal saya is immaculate underneath. The blade is in as found condition, no rust no pits, no chips. The features of the blade are there for the eyes to appreciate. As expected there is very slight staining with age and combat use. I love the patina on these swords that show that they have been taken to war, and not left in an office or cupboard. The mei is well cut, and the nakago is in very nice condition. To further prove its originality, the MUNE stamps are evident, and not obscured by rust that so often happens. At AUD3150, I will express post with tracking and signature any where. These swords are now very collectable and sought after, not often does an original example that hasn't been monkeyed with come up.
  2. Just a quick inventory and sales update notice for the business. Take a look and enjoy. https://www.raindragonfineartandantiques.com/so/47NXvnmDY?languageTag=en
  3. 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
  4. This a long sword (katana) by the swordsmith Sukekuni who worked in both Kii and Settsu Provinces. The temper (hamon) consists of large undulating pattern of gentle waves (ō-notare). The base of temper is a fine martensite crystals (nioi) with larger visable martensite crystals (nie) mixed in. The forging pattern of the steel (jihada) has a fine random wood grain pattern (ko-itame). The overall shape of the sword has ridgeline with a defined tip (shinogi-zukuri). Sukekuni worked around the Kanbun Era from 1661-1673 CE. He has an excellent rating in Fujishiro Index as Jo-saku. In Japanese Swordsmiths Revised by HW Hawley, page 764 index number SUK709 this swordsmith is noted for producing sharp swords. The NTHK apprised this sword to be the work of (Hanafusa Sukekuni 花房祐國) and authenticated the signature. The cutting-edge length (nagasa) of this sword is 61.2 cm (24.5 inches). The overall condition of the sword is excellent in a good art polish. There is a small flaw (kizu) and few fine scratches that do not detract from the beauty of sword. The asking price is $2,500 USD, but will consider all fair offers from NMB members. For more photographs and additional information check out my website: Long Sword (Katana) by Sukekuni | Rain Dragon Fine Art (raindragonfineartandantiques.com). Feel free to ask questions and politely discuss. Thank you.
  5. 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.
  6. I was happy to study this fine Japanese long sword (katana 刀) which is the oldest such sword I have been able examine in detail. Based upon an analysis of the workmanship details I think it dates from the late Kamakura Period circa the Showa Era (1312-1317 CE) and a product of the Ko-Mihara (古三原) School of Yamato Tradition (Yamato-den 大和伝). This does not preclude the possibility that the sword is an (utsushi 写し) made during the early Muromachi Period about 1336-1400 CE. Basically, a utsushi is a faithful copy made of an earlier style out of reverence for the original. This is a common thing when it comes to Japanese fine art and sometimes makes accurate dating difficult. This fine Japanese art sword with NBTHK appraisal is for sale check out the website link below for more information about how to purchase. The asking price is $4,000 USD, but I am open to reasonable offers from NMB members and feel to politely discuss. Upon sale I can provide an English translation of the NBTHK appraisal paper if required. Enjoy and thanks for reading my topic.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  20. 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!

Tigers in bamboo fuchi-kashira Craftsmanship in the essence. Look at the details, brilliant nanakoji, inlay work, carvings. Masterpiece grade item. Signed “Omori Teruhide Kao” Price: USD 750 2. Huang Shigong (Kosekiko) and Zhang Liang (Choryo) fuchi-kashira This is something really rare. Motif is quite popular but not so many items out there, especially f-k and this one is a true find.

  24. 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.
  25. 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!
