    WTB: fair condition tanto, koto-shinshinto

    searching for a tanto, doesn't matter if in shirasaya or koshirae, up to around 900$ ish.
    -Has to be in fair surface condition, hamon showing properly
    -Absolutely no nicks, chips, cracks, or god forbid, hagire
    -doesn't matter if it's signed or mumei
    -Period doesn't matter much, anything other than gendaito (including meiji)

    Fire away, i'm searching for anything decent i can find at the moment, pretty urgent actually.

    Ofek,

    I have a beautiful, flawless Shobu-zukuri tanto by Jumyo. I just decided to sell this one today. Here's a few photos.

    I just had this sword professionally polished in Japan this year.


    Please respond to my email. It's easier for me to navigate.

    Why the urgency my friend? I have a great tanto available, that I would do cash+trade. I don't mind if it's newer reproduction stuff or nihonto.
    Thanks,
    Sal

    ...Gwyn, it's kind of rude to threadjack. I won't ask you to delete, but try not to repeat it.
    Sal- i saw your tanto, and i love it. But it's simply way beyond the budget frame, which is firm at 900-920$ish tops, the urgency is because i had a deal lined up (not the one from travis- a lot before that) that exploded after the other guy sold it to someone else, i need a nihonto tanto for a short presentation i'm going to give about the subject (local association for antique weaponry collectors), later going to be mounted in new koshirae and as a present for one of the older members.
    I was sure i'll have it by mid august, but now my time is running out....

    Hi Ofek,

    I'm sure this one can be had for below your current budget. If I see anything else that fits your requirements I'll make sure to let you know. Take care.

    I think this fits your bill nicely, it's in mountings and has a decent polish already
