Jim Dawson's new book is out and it is a beauty! It covers all Japanese swords in the period 1868-1945 and clears up a lot of confusion that I had on several sword issues. He also covers in detail the Experimental Sword Pistols with outstanding photographs that have not been seen before. There are exceptional color and B&W photographs throughout the book. It is truly an amazing work.

Order Now

If you have not ordered a copy yet you should contact Jim at www.stenger-scott.com.

I can not recommend this book too highly. Anyone with even a slight interest in this subject will have to have a copy in their library.

I didn't pay to much for that old Arisaka, I just bought it a little bit too soon!

I bought my copy today, all I can say is WOW! You should see the stuff! I couldn't wait to get to the 'throne room' and peruse the pages! I don't even know anything about swords, but I soon will! Buy the book! Trey
