Hi you all, hope to find an expert that can help me quickly on this one.
I am about to buy some arrows and the seller claims they are old japanese authentic Edo period pieces (1603-1868).
full lengths between 97-101 cm
But I have never seen any arrowheads like these anywhere...
Anybody with knowledge about these arrowheads? How can I be sure these are antique Japanese?
Hope to find the answer within 5 days from now.
Thanks for any help on this....

The samurai sword symbolizes in fact the soul of the samurai.
"If the samurai sword was just a weapon, why would tokkotai (suicide-mission) pilots during the Pacific War have one stowed in the cockpit of their planes that they aimed to slam into oblivion against an enemy ship?" says Yoshihara, who is one of Japan's top swordsmiths.
