  9. FS: Japanese-made iaito by Nishijin Sword, 2.5 shaku

    Regrettably, I have to part ways with this fine instrument. My obligation to my family has been first and foremost in my life since my daughter was born two years ago. I haven't made it to my old...

    Beautiful work. Slightly off topic, but how does that wall plaque hold the blade? Rare earth magnets?

    Just thought of something else. How could I forgot to mention the British Museum?! See it while you're in London. Admission is always free, and you can easily lose an entire day or two there. There...

    Trains are the way to go when visiting the UK! My wife and I went a couple of years ago, and the only time we were in a car was taking cabs to and from Heathrow. Speaking as a Texan that dislikes...

    I also looked for "H.P. Moulton Barrett", the name stamped on the blade. It seems he was a Colonel that served in World War I. Although that took place after Victoria's reign, he probably acquired...

    I'm no expert on European swords, the Japanese stuff is usually more to my liking.

    However, noticed the royal cypher of Queen Victoria I, written "VR" on the guard. That stands for "Victoria...

    I sold my Hanwei Shinto Katana on the SFI classifieds a while back. While the tsuba is different, the fuchi and kashira are unmistakable. I'm guessing that someone just swapped their own tsuba on a...

    It seems to me that the Jidai model swords have squared angles on the kashira, where the Higo models seem to be more rounded, and usually less ornate. The choice between the two styles may come down...

    Robert,

    Greetings from across the pond. Some retailers will oil a sword a little more than usual to protect it while shipping. But it may be much oil to leave on for regular maintenance.

    Looks like a katana blade with bo-hi and a suguha hamon. As for the hilt style, it looks Middle Eastern, maybe Indian? Shamshir? Tulwar?

    Interesting idea for a combination.
