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.

 “Pre Show Review”

This coming Sunday will be our last meeting until the August sword show. As has been our tradition, we are encouraging members who are planning on selling items at the show to bring some or all of them to the meeting for our “August Taikai Preview Sale”. This is a chance for our members to get a jump up on the competition and a chance for the sellers to generate some cash to spend wantonly at the show.

Bring your goodies and your checkbook (or cash, of course) this Sunday. You might be surprised at what you will pick-up from your fellow members.

As usual, all items must be priced and if more than one person wants a certain item, we can have a flip of the coin or drawing of names be the deciding factor.


Future meetings:

July 21 - Pre Token-Kai show-and-tell.
August 2-4 - SF Token-Kai at the Airport Marriott
September 16 - Treasures from the SF Token-Kai


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.
