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.

May 14, 2017

(One week early due to Bay to Breakers)

This month we feature a special presentation by our own Junichi Gondai;

"Why Warriors Chose Tea: A wrap up of Samurai, tea, swords and tsuba in pre-modern Japan. "

To help illustrate the talk we invite you to share any Nobuie, Kaneie, Yamakichibei, Hoan, Higo, or Namban tsuba. For swords we're looking for Daimyo level blades and fittings. Of course any new acquisitions are welcome and there will be a fine blade for kantei.



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.
