New Certificate/kanteisho

Recommended Posts

I've seen them before on YJP - but didn't think people actually put value in them? Especially the radar chart seems arbritary.

Well that is too complicated for me to answer. :laughing: I know they know a lot more than I do so I take their opinion like that. Unfortunately I don't know them at personal level and I don't know the connections between them. I have been under the belief that Satō Hitoshi is running Katana no Kura and Minoru Mitsui is also in the company.

 

Here is their website: http://jasmk.jp, and you can find their appraising team here: http://jasmk.jp/info/index.html

I never saw one of their certificates before. Maybe Piers knows about them, since they are located in Okayama.

This "Kurashiki-sword museum" is the name of the showroom of the sword shop.

Mr.Sato is a middle class Japanese main stream sword dealer in Japan.
When you open the Museum website, there is menu that for sale, and buy and all of exhibit items are for sale. haha,
The Kanteisho certificate has Shop owner's signature which is just like a shop guarantee paper. same like Aoi art is issuing Kanteiho with Shop owner's signature.
and Token-Sato (Kurashiki museum) is guarantee the price (money), they say that they will buy their item back anytime with 90% of the price what they sold. 
This kind of sales policy attracts people who are investing mind more than sword collector's mind.
but, the business could be a bit tricky and real collector's items are not around those circle.

Thanks a lo Kunitaro san. I have equally seen somewhere that they don't sell abroad perhaps why they put these swords with Aoi Art...

Explained above perfectly. I like Mr. Sato a lot personally. 

 

Just don't see it taking any real hold on the market though. I encountered it once on one of my swords and my response was to send it in for Hozon immediately. This is ultimately the thing that people can have the most faith in and the least amount of explaining on my part.
