Hi All,

I have the following items up for sale as a set. Custom projects necessitate selling a few items.



I have a Darryl Guertin Keicho Shinto katana made in 1070 steel forged in a U no Kubi Zukuri style. This blade is forged in U no Kubi Zukuri (cormorant’s neck), which is like Shinogi zukuri in the belly of the blade (close to the nakago), and Shobu Zukuri in the upper part.

This cutting sword should do well in kata.

Specifications:
Blade length (from Tsuba): 29" nagasa
Overall Length:
Saya Length:
Tsuka Length: 11 inches
Sori: .75inch torii sori
Menuki, Fuchi and Kashira: Dragonfly themed
Tsuba:
Weight: 2 lbs 9.1 oz
Steel: 1070
Koshi-hi
U no Kubi zukuri
Balance- About 4.75” from tsuba
Nagasa - 29.2 inch munemachi
Motohaba - 1.2 inches
Sakihaba - 1.1 inches






I have not used this katana for any cutting. It has been polished and re-etched by me. It has been on display in my house. After taking pictures today, my dog ran under my feet, causing me to drop the katana in saya. No damage to katana, but saya's laquer was chipped off in two small spots on the end of the saya. No other damage.

Darryl Guertin Keicho Shinto Tanto made in 1070 steel forged in a “U no Kubi Zukuri” style. The blade is 12 inches long from the tsuba.




This has a large point, little taper in width, and relatively shallow sori; the bulk of the curvature, and taper having been cut off from the original swords that the copies were made from. This blade is forged in U no Kubi Zukuri (cormorant’s neck), which is like Shinogi zukuri in the belly of the blade (close to the nakago), and Shobu Zukuri in the upper part.

I originally bought this to be paired with the Guertin katana in U no Kubi Zukuri style. This tanto has never cut anything and is EXTREMELY SHARP!! I am the original owner.

Specifications:
Blade length (from Tsuba): 12 inches
Overall Length: 23 inches
Saya Length: 17 inches
Tsuka Length: 5.75 inches
Menuki, Fuchi and Kashira: Dragonfly themed
Tsuba: Musashi-style (double cucumber)
Steel: 1070

This set is $1000.00 firm. I will pay for shipping, handling and insurance to you (CONUS). If you live outside the US, shipping, handling and insurance is your cost.

If you’re interested, let me know.

Thanks,

Jeff
