All items purchased from this site have a three day inspection/approval period and may be returned, for any reason, if buyer is not completely satisfied. Please note that unless they have a valid re-sale license, Minnesota residents must pay 6.9% sales tax, Minneapolis residents pay a 7.75 sales tax.   First an increase of .15% ($15 per one thousand) is to subsidize the sports business for a few multimillionaires.   Followed by an increase .25% for transportation, something worthwhile.  I have no idea about the latest increase.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Andrew Quirt.  Some may know me from my tongue-in-cheek articles, as well as some of a more serious nature, that have appeared in various sword club publications. I have been collecting and dealing in Japanese swords and tosogu for the past fifty plus years.  I served on  he Board of the JSS/US for eight years; have been a member of the NBTHK for more than forty years; was the vice president  in charge of the Americas for the European section of the NBTHK for three years; and working with Robert Benson,  Paul Davidson, Mike Yamasaki, and others, and with the good will and efforts of Yamanaka San, Suzuki San, both of whom now deceased, and Tanobe Michihiro San of the NBTHK, was able to help form an American Branch of the NBTHK, (NBTHK-AB) in late 2002, which exists today as a non-commercial organization to promote the preservation, study, and appreciation of Japanese swords and their accoutrements.  Nihonto.us is an independent commercial site that is neither associated with, nor endorsed by, any of the organizations with which I am now or have been associated.
