Extraordinary offer

Because I need to make a quick buck for an unplanned study trip to Japan, I am offering for sale swords from my deposit. These are blades made off commission for my collection and presentation, usually copies of interesting swords, or experimental work studying the formation of metallurgical effects of koto swords.
