Nihonto Masterwork

My name is Darcy Brockbank and I am a life member of the Nippon Bijutsu Token Hozon Kyokai (NBTHK) in Tokyo, Japan. On this website you can find authentic nihonto (antique Japanese swords) and tosogu (antique fittings) for sale, as well as various educational material, research documents and photographs.

My speciality is in the sale of high class antique Japanese Swords that have met elite standards for quality and integrity. I prefer to concentrate on the best items, rather than to deal with high volume commercial grade items. As a result, these are usually masterwork swords and fittings that have passed the stringent requirements to be awarded Juyo Token (Important Sword) or Tokubetsu Juyo Token (Extraordinarily Important Sword) by the NBTHK in Japan. Mostly I sell authentic antiques from the samurai era and earlier, though I will place some high class modern katana from time to time. If this is the first time you have encountered any of these terms, you can read about them more in my nihonto ratings article. Or you can read the other articles.
