I believe 6. :( I think I had 60-80 addresses back in 2009 a few members helped me with. Half still corresponded. Its sad, but they've made it to their loved ones and comrades that went before.

Wow, looks like some really nice swords, tosugu, etc! I agree, a lot of times auction houses do not know how to photograph swords. Understandable with how many items at times, but still sucks unless...

Agreed, especially here in Yokosuka. There is almost not a shop or such that doesn't have the Cherry blossom. Of course, their SDF uses it still, so it's not too surprising!

I've seen a similar style on a katana once back a few years ago. Though it was less tired than this poor blade. I'm guessing this was early Shinto that was o-suriage! Its a shame! Looks like the...

Definitely an older blade pressed into service, retaining the older tsuba. One of our guys can translate the mei (signature) if they have the time.

Looks like a nice little set! Hope they never split up, if they indeed came from the same Rottenfuhrer. Does there happen to be a name in the tunic?

1200 seems quite a bit much for a trainer, even the naval marked ones. If prices have been the same, I think most have been for 500, maybe a bit more max?

Perhaps the seller is unaware of it being...

Hey man, hate to break the news, but it is a Chinese fake. The blade's shape is bad and the horimono (artistic engraving) is a sure giveaway with the terrible drawing.
