SEVEN fantastic Hon-dachi sets.  

Some of them are available in antique Silver, others in Bronze and some in blackened Steel.

Due to the recent increased cost of SILVER, there will be a 'premium' added to the below prices to cover the cost of Silver. 

The below prices were established when Silver was $4 or $5 per ounce.  In early 2012, Silver is at $32 per ounce.

Set # 1:(above) Darkened Silver, sized for Katana or Wakizashi, only $450.

The Fuchi is 38mm, Koiguchi is 40mm.  Quality parts, genuine $750 value.

Set # 2:  Available In darkened Silver, antique Silver (as displayed).  This set will fit either

Katana or Wakizashi at only $450. Same dimensions as set # 1, competitively priced at $750.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Set # 3... Aikuchi  (no Tsuba required) 4 piece set, Gold plated Bronze or antique Silver  $400.  This very

high quality Aikuchi set has been added to this page to give it the additional exposure it deserves.

++++++++++\+++++

 

Set # 4 Black colored Steel only ..sized for very slender blade, only $350. Compare at $700

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Kurikata band  (above)

Set # 5 (above) - $600. Because no other supplier produces sets like these, there are no legitimate 'comparables'.  However I did see a set advertised on a site for $7,000 by some clueless idiot.  Above set available in semi-polished Bronze or blackened Bronze. 

The above set is extra large as it originally housed a 37 inch blade. Inside measurements ( from the Ha to the Mune) from the left (Kojiri) to the right (Kashira) are as follows:  39mm, 40m, 41mm, 45mm for the Kurikata band (not shown), Koiguchi is 47mm, 44mm, and the Kashira is 36mm. Similar sized sets are available on line at higher prices often as much as $5,000

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Set # 6 Wakizashi size, antique Silver Bronze or 24K Gold plate.  $400. Compare at $750

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Set # 7    

Five piece CROSS HAWKS FEATHERS

The above set is available in Black Steel @ $350 or antique Silver @ $500. To complete the 5 piece SET are matching Menuki, Ashi (hangers) and a Steel Tsuba.  

The entire 10 piece set (in steel or Bronze) is only $630 and in Silver is $900.    Compare at $5,000 to $7,000

  Inside measurements are as follows:  Fuchi: 34 x 17mm / 1.35 x .67" -   Kashira: 33-34mm x 16.5mm / 1.32 x .66 ",  (Kojiri has identical measurements as the Kashira)    Koiguchi:  38 x 21mm / 1.45 x 72" and (two sizes)  36 x 18mm   Shibabiki:  37 x 19mm / 1.45 x .77"  Ashi:  35 x 22mm / 1.55 x .85".    We recently became aware of a similar appearing (modern made) sets being offered on the web as (his description) for $7,000 and are not even good quality copies.
