B1073. Katana no Gimei by Inutsuka & Fukunaga
B1073. Katana no Gimei by Inutsuka & Fukunaga. 1973. Hardbound with dust jacket and plastic jacket, 7 ½ x 10 ½”, 196 pages in Japanese. This book is a study of false signatures on Japanese swords. Forgeries have been a problem from a long time ago; at times there were well organized shops turning out blades with faked signatures. With this book and some study you might be able to avoid buying a fake. I have a digital copy of an English index to this book. If you buy it remind me to send you the index.
Condition is excellent. 1 pound, 14 ounces. $70.
