    Default 1800's shinshinto katana for sale

    Bought this sword from Moses back in 2008. Excellent condition mumei shinshinto katana. Nice ubu nakago, and decent polish. Selling to fund another longer sword which i wish to purchase. This katana also comes with another tsuka which is only a few years old with tight brown leather tsukamaki and black same-gawa. Perfect for iaido or display. It weighs 1240grams which would be perfect for cutting practise also. Those who are interested, I can send photos of the new tsuka via email. The link to the sword is on Moses website here: Asking price is $3100USD, but willing to negotiate depending on shipping price fluctuations to differing countries.

    Kind regards,

    I'm the person who bought it back in 2008. Now I'm selling it and using the link to describe the sword and provide people with the quality photos. If anyone needs further pictures please ask.

    Cheers

    The tsuka only!?!
    Wow - interested but also a bit perplexed, why would you break up such a nice koshirae? What is the price now that she has no handle?

    Hi there,

    Sold the tsuka for $300 and i needed the cash to pay for a foot injury I have, the guy was only interested in the tsuka and its fittings, but it still comes with a nice modern leather bound tsuka made in Japan with modern Higo fittings for the practitioner. Price now $1700USD. No negotiation, i have photos of the new tsuka if you want

    email me if you are interested jeremy(underscore)hagop@yahoo.com
    cheers,

    Jeremy
