Japanese Sword Seminar with Nobuo Nakahara and Takuyoshi Nakano



We are honoured to announce that we will be holding the Japanese sword seminar with Nakahara Nobuo, one of the top kanteika (connoisseur) of Japanese sword in Japan today, and his senior disciple Nakano Takuyoshi, a NBTHK sword instructor at the viewing room of Christie’s Amsterdam, a beautiful location in city of Amsterdam in autumn of 2019.

Nakahara’s lecture offers practical and precise, hands-on view to the essence of Japanese sword collecting and appreciation.  We have decided to keep these seminars as small groups in order to make them more intimate and meaningful. Traditionally, most of the secret knowledge was passed down generation to generation by oral instruction ; this is called 口伝 (kuden). This event will be the first time master Nobuo Nakahara and his disciple Takuyoshi Nakano held the seminar outside of Japan.
This present great opportunity to meet and receive expert knowledge direct from the masters.
