    Price reduction.

    Good Day All,

    I would accept $1500.00, shipped & insured, for this remarkable Aikuchi. This will be the one and only price reduction. Trades and/or partial-trades will be considered, as well. OK?

    Thanks for looking, Jon

    Thumbs up One more go.

    Hi folks,

    The old photos have been moved to a new folder, so I thought I'd BUMP this thread with a few new pics and some from the first photo-shoot. Yes, it's still for sale, now lowered to the lowest acceptable offer of $1375.00 shipped & insured, with Delivery Confirmation. Or a good trade offer? I bought it at 20% off, for $1775.00, from Frederick's Swords (2003). The original fittings and hibaki are solid silver. The beautiful red lacquer had been "renewed" the same year. I had seen it prior to the restoration and the flaky, old, cracked lacquer was less than perfect, for such a well-preserved blade. This is a great price for such a wonderful little warrior!

    Thanks for looking, Jon

    Bump and few new pics.

    Price being held at $1,375.00. Includes shipping, insurance and Delivery confirmation. Delivery free in CONUS but International shipping can be worked out for a few bucks more and it wold be relative to the destination (but of course).

    Thanks for looking, Jon

    Hi,
    If the Aikuchi is still available at 1275$, I will take it.
    Please send me an email at fab_adr@yahoo.fr to let me know how you want payment (if you take paypal, I will add 3% to the price to help cover the fee)
    Regards,
    FAB
