B1058.  Kokusai Tosogu Kai 6th International Convention & Exhibition  2010.  Hardbound with slicase, 8 1/2 x 10″, 94 pages in English and Japanese. The KTK is a private club of serious kodogu collectors.  They meet once a year for their convention and every year they publish a wonderful book for the show.

The book opens with a 3 page glossary.  Other than the usual Goto and Nobuie, this issue contains very old tsuba from the Kofun and Kamakura era, two tsuka from the Muromachi and Momoyama peroid, and a very fine ko-Kinko ensuite wakizashi koshirae of the Momoyama  jidai. It issue finishes with two interesting articles: the survival of tthe missing Hisakuni ( a pre WW-2 kokuho) , and the history of lead sword fittings.

The book is in new condition.  It is with a trusted consignor to my site who lives in Canada.  He will ship from the Toronto area and my usual guarantee applies.  2 pounds, 3 ounces.  $100.
