To the Members of the Sacramento Japanese Sword Club -

Unfortunately, a Sacramento-area sword collector was the victim of a burglary. The burglar will likely try to sell the stolen items. So, please be on the look-out for any of the following items.

- Two Yasunori katana. One was dated Showa 18, is an unusually long 27 inches (the normal length is 26 inches, and is in Type 98 military mounts with family crests (mon).

- A Yasutoku katana dated Showa 15, is 26 and 1/4 inches long, and is in Type 98 military mounts with family crests.

- An Awataguchi Tadatsuna wakizashi with a 21 inch cutting edge.

- A mounted Enju school katana approximately 30 inches long.

- A late World War II Type 44 green scabbard.

- A military gunto blade that was in the process of polishing.

- Three or four Type 98 military mounts with tsunagi (wood filler blades). One of the mounts, unusually, had copper fittings.

- A koto Morimitsu tachi approximately 28 inches long, ubu (the tang has not been shortened).

- An unsigned koto Kamakura tachi with a hi (groove).

- Several gold-inlayed menuki.

The burglary occurred on Monday June 13 at approximately 9:30 a.m. The burglar was driving a navy blue pick-up truck. Evidence indicates the burglar was not knowledgeable about swords. Again, please be on the look-out for any of these items. Also, please feel free to forward this E-mail message to others who may see these items for sale.

Thank you,
Wayne
