The antique japanese swords (nihonto) on this site are for sale or for gallery purposes. The catalogue of swords that are for sale will be clearly marked with a price. The swords that are not for sale but for gallery purposes only will be clearly marked as Gallery only. I am not a dealer in swords but a student on a long journey of study, conservation and appreciation. I am lucky enough to own some nice blades, (more photos to come) and as I learn will pass some on at pretty much the same price they were offered to me. I'm also hoping to practice my photography by putting up some blades on consignment in the near future.

The woodblock prints I own are primarily by Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861). Inside is a bit of background on this master print artist. My favorite series is "Seichu gishi den" The faithful samurai, a story of the 47 ronin. Probably one of Kuniyoshi's most famous series (51 single prints in all). You will see these prints represented in many Nihonto books. As a matter of intertest (for myself) I have included a story on the history of the 47 Ronin, translations of the kaisho calligraphy found on the prints that I own, and the  swords that they carried. My new area of research is the story of the Soga brothers revenge, and the associated kuniyoshi prints. I am selling some fine Japanese prints from my collection, including prints from the series "69 post stations of the Kisokaido Rd", "100 heros of high renown"  and "47 Ronin".
Many years, in—i forgot the number of people—but there are two things in our experience that we can comment on: one, we thought there was less aspiration in the botox group when compared retrospectively to a group that got pyloromyotomy and a group that didn't. buy viagra super force erectile dysfunction pills You showed your aspiration rate, but you didn't show it for the other. kanye west viagra video Is it higher or lower? the effects of viagra on blood pressure Dr martin: the aspiration rate documented in the literature seems higher. generic viagra prices Our single patient was, interestingly, a patient who had failed intraop botox management, was symptomatic, and got reintervened. viagra for sale online cheap That was a patient who had a complicated postop(erative) course. kanye west viagra video We had no other aspiration events. viagra generic for sale Dr cerfolio: so that was our conclusion as well—that it may decrease the aspiration rate, which is still our number one and most devastating postop(erative) complication. Female viagra generic The number two thing we liked about it wasn't really the prevention of dumping as dan suggested but rather the prevention of bile reflux. viagra 4 pack Instead of turning a valve that's supposed to be a one-way valve into an incompetent bidirectional valve that gives bile reflux. Viagra vs viagra recreational I was tired of patients coming back with that complaint and i had nothing to treat them with and would just say "hey, you're cured of your cancer. cheapest viagra on the web Go home," because i had nothing else to treat them with. how to buy generic viagra Since using botox, which is why i started using it a long time ago, is that this really has reduced our incidence of bile reflux. viagra use women What about you? buying viagra online without prescription Dr martin: certainly. buy cheap viagra online uk We had a zero incidence of bile reflux, and i think that that touches on one very important advantage of botox, that this is a transient effect in the immediate postop(erative) period where aspiration can be a life-threatening complication, yet doesn't leave the patient with an additional complication that can be lifelong. take viagra 100 mg Dr cerfolio: and, finally, those are the reasons why i think it's the ideal solution. Viagra soft tab review Yes, we need a prospective randomized study, but until we do it, i think botox is the answer, not pyloromyotomy,. buy generic viagra online usa pharmacy cheapest place to buy viagra online I have 1 suit of armour currently. My first purchase was a meji period representative piece, but I traded that for other things, now I have a suit from mid to late 1500's (dou & hachi) with matched remainder early/mid Edo. I've added an authentic heraldry flag from 1850's, and a traditionally made gendaito, which makes it all look spectacular in the lounge room!
Study and research, study and research! These are the books I use, occasionally, they will come up for sale. I have provided pictures (click on the pics for larger view) and a fairly detailed description of each. I have also used a "drool metre" as some of these books are simply stunning in their visual content, and well, maybe as close as some of us will get to owning some of these pieces: so for those who want some good drool material it may help point you in the right direction.
I have only recently started collecting fittings, Tsuba and Kozuka. I tend to lean towards the later Edo period soft metal, where I can appreciate the detail and workmanship in these. The pictures never seem to do justice, particularly with the Kozuka, though I have some pics up there now that I'm happy with.
