I am a native English speaker, based in Tokyo, and I have a vast number of fully traditionally trained swordsmiths, polishers, scabbard makers, handle wrappers, fittings makers, lacquerers and habaki makers at my service. I also provide a top shinsa service.

I am able to submit your swords, koshirae, fittings and armor to the major shinsa organisations based in Tokyo. We do our best to get you a result while your treasures are here with us in Japan. Together with our many knowledgable friends and craftsmen here in Japan, if you don t get the result that you hoped for, we can offer sound advice with further options before sending your artworks back to you, and we will resubmit for a second shinsa for free (shinsa fees still apply). Swordsmiths in Japan are regulated by the government. Smiths have to be licensed and are restricted to making two long swords or three shorts swords per month. Every aspect of sword making by all the craftsmen involved is by hand.

Due to the various craftsmen involved in the completion of one blade, there are various waiting lists. On average, it takes approximately one year from your initial payment to complete your order. Longer if you have also ordered mountings.
