I'm looking to sell an excellent antique O-wakizashi forged circa 1661 by Musashi no Kami Fujiwara Morimichi, a chu-jo (above average) rated swordsmith. It has a wonderful shirasaya made by the same man that last polished it. Its polish is laid down and there are a few small rust spots, but the hamon and hada are both present and easily identifiable, though it would benefit from a touch-up polish. This was the first antique nihonto I ever owned, and I am selling it because, unfortunately, I am very low on money right now. Asking price is $1000 or best offer, plus shipping, but email me for pics and details of its characteristics.

I have two New South Wales Police commerative swords for sale. I collected them while I was a policeman in New South Wales. They are original, in mint condition, and extremely rare. There is a limited edition of 250 for each sword, they cannot be bought retail anywhere in the world. The mould for the swords were destroyed. They were commissioned by the New South Wales Police Force to commerate 100 years of policing, the hand engraving on the blades, the 24crt gold plating is something to be seen. They are numbered, and 1 comes with its original box. I do not have the C.O.A. being transferred over the years to different town unfortunately they were lost. But these are 100% original or your money back. They will never be made available again. If you know anyone interested. I will take a number of photos and email them. If a potential owner, wants to check on the originality of the swords, all they have to do is to email the maker. Wilkinson sword in England, and a Spanish company in Spain. They are really something to see. They are a once in a life time opportunity for a collector. The only way one can be bought, is someone like myself, who owns them. They were only sold to policeman, not to the public. They have no marks, scratches, or damage in any way. They are in MINT condition.

For Sale: Japanese Army Parade Saber. This machine-made sword was used by Japanese Army Officers starting in the 1930's and through World War II. This type of Japanese Sword was produced for show only and was manufactured with a chrome plated blade and scabbard. The chrome plating on the blade features a wavy temper line. The temper line is for show only since the blades on this type of Japanese sword were not really tempered. I have pictures here.

This large book of 520 pages by John Thillmann is easily the most authoritative and detailed reference on the subject. It begins with the M1833 Dragoon Saber (some were used in the Civil War) and continues to the end of the Civil War. It deals with United States sabers, officer and enlisted, domestic and imported, and all known manufacturers. The book goes into details such as marks and dimensions, even the way different manufacturers wrapped the grip. All this can be used to date swords and to identify fakes and reworks. There are several appendices with excellent information including Ordnance Department inspectors 1830-1865 and important information on William Glaze and the Palmetto Armory.
$79 plus $4.50 shipping in the US. Shipping overseas at cost. E-mail for a large blade book list.
