If you have questions about a Japanese sword, or related item(s), bring it/them to a meeting! Many knowledgeable collectors, and even a few experts, attend our meetings and are happy to help. Meetings are a good place to obtain many opinions with just one visit.

 “Soft Metal”

June 16 will be Soft Metal Tsuba and, if you got 'em, fittings.
We are looking for fittings, Tsuba and other art featuring Chinese and Japanese legend, popular and rare themes. If you have something unusual that you always wondered what it is, submit it to our team of researchers and we will do our utmost to provide you with the full story.

July will be Sword show pre-show show-and-tell, and sale.
Bring items you want to display in August and any items you hope to sell (and are willing to share) for local members to get a preview.
August is the sword show, September will be Treasures from the Taikai.
