Touken Komachi Experience?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here bought from Touken Komachi before? I’ve got my eye on a blade there but would love to hear about others’ experiences if possible.

 

Thanks!

Positive. Tsukada San is good and courteous. Their prices on average are a bit lower than most. I recommend them

I have purchased a number of items from Shiho Tsukada and she has always been very helpful. There has never been any problems with obtaining additional information or photos. My latest purchase from them is a Tadatsuna 2nd which I had polished through them and was very happy with the results. Highly recommended.

Have not bought from them as yet, but had asked about a blade around a year ago and they were fast to respond and provide all the pictures I asked for. Was a great interaction.

 

John C, I had no idea they offer a polish service. How long did it take can I ask?

Hi Jeremiah L,

 

Taking into account the the extra time for internal Japanese deliveries, international/Australian postage and customs it took about 6 1/2 months from payment to delivery. I don't think that that was too unreasonable. I had it polished in sashi-komi which I personally prefer. As expected the blade looks far more impressive in hand than in the photo's. I'm very happy with the product and "extra's" provided by Touken Komachi.

Hi Stephen,

 

Unfortunately not, google has the Touken Komachi presentation under Tadatsuna 2nd generation but I can't seem to get a link to work. Anyway for anyone who is interested here are a couple more photo's, thanks.

That's a great polish IMO, and the turn around time fantastic.

 

One of my reasons for not taking on projects is the multi year project they become. Interesting yours came back that fast.

Just an update on this seller.

 

Last week I contacted them about a tsuba I was interested in. They provided additional pictures of the item as requested almost instantly. We agreed on price on Friday and the tsuba was boxed and shipped via EMS on Saturday. It's already in New York as of today. So I have to say, excellent service. Very professional.

Another plug!

 

I added two new sword bags from Touken Komachi over the last 2 weeks. Ms. Shiho Tsukada is excellent to communicate with and shipping was prompt. The silk sword bags are excellent and the color (I ordered dark navy blue) is rich. I also got some new mekugi pins of smoked bamboo.

 

Can highly recommend this seller.
