GENDAITO PROJECT HAS STARTED

1

Just back from my Europe trip (details on that will follow later), I launched my announced crowdfunding campaign for the GENDAITO PROJECT. Goal is $15,000 what is needed to make, maintain, update, and first of all feed the free online database with more than thousand entries for smiths and thousands of pictures. As seen on the indiegogo campaign site, there are perks, i.e. if you donate a certain amount to the project, you will get a goodie like eBooks and books of mine of choice, the finished Gendaito book, a good deal for my three-volume Japanese Swordsmiths set, and thanks to a donation of my dear friend Bobby, I have 5 nice little tsuba as giveaways too (as long as they last of course)!

I thank you all for your support and with the literally thousands of references I have received over the last two years, the GENDAITO PROJECT will become the greatest online reference/database on Gendaito and WWII smiths, provided that I can reach my goal! Again, thank you so much in advance!

Update: Indiegogo only accepts PayPal donations if the campaign is raising  funds in AUD. However, I would be happy to accept direct PayPal donations to “markus.sesko@gmail.com”, with all the options for perks as offered on indiegogo of course 🙂

One thought on “GENDAITO PROJECT HAS STARTED

  1. Hello Marcus,I am excited for your new project! I have been collecting Shingunto for several years now.As a relatively new enthusiast of Japanese edged weapons, I mainly dealt with the WWII blades so I could study and learn, and at that time military blades would not destroy my interest due to a mistake because of my ignorance and the relatively reasonably prices (At that time) also the fact that Military swords were held in very low esteem for collectors of Nihonto. I am waiting on a sword to return from polish that was reputed to be made by Kanefuji (Fuji) Translation by Guy Power on the War Relics Forum The Nakago is marked 関住兼藤作Seki-jū Kanefuji Saku Made by Kanefuji residing in Seki

    昭和十六年十月 Shōwa jÅ« roku-nen jÅ« gatsu October 1941  If it would be of any help I would be happy to provide photos of the sword when it returns shortly I will send a link to my amazon cloud of the sword if it would be of interest,showing the sword in its military mounts.I have included 2 photos of the Nakago and will send a link to my amazon cloud so you can see full sized files of the blade and mounts as I originally received them, and it it would be of any interest I can send new images after I receive the blade in polish.Thank you for you efforts I feel you are touching a very interesting and valuable reference for the crossing over of interest into the hand forged blades. All the best!
