Everyone is welcome at our meetings, you do not need to be a NCJSC member to attend.  

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.

Next meeting:

September 17, 2017

August is our favorite time of year, it brings the To-ken Taikai, September may be our second favorite as it is the time we get to share all our treasures from the Taikai. If you have new acquisitions whether from the sword show or not now is the time to show them off.
And since this year we also had a shinsa we have the opportunity to bring items that were submitted and discuss the opinions rendered by the shinsa judges.
As always there will be a kantei blade to challenge all of us.




Regular meetings start at 12:30 pm, and generally run until about 3:00 or 3:30 pm. The Board meeting starts immediately after the general meeting. All NCJSC MEMBERS are welcome to attend the Board meetings.
