    ~ 17th Century Japanese Katana Sword With 18th Century Fittings ~


    The sword comes with its black painted bamboo scabbard.

    The blade is made in the ‘shinogi-kukuri’ pattern.

    Its mune (blade back) is shaped in the 'Ihori' style and its kissaki (point) is ‘o’ (long).

    The boshi (sword tip) hamon isn’t visible anymore due to extensive polish of the blade.

    The hamon is shaped in the ‘Sugu’ (straight) pattern and is partially visible.

    The swords fittings are made of brass and steel.

    The habaki (blade locket/ferrule) is made of gilded copper.

    The brass tsuba (guard) is plain and is made of steel.

    There is only one gilded copper seppa (spacer).

    The fushi (sleeve) is made of steel and decorated with gold inlays. The kashira (pommel) is manufactured and decorated in the same manner.

    The tsuka (grip) is made of bamboo covered with white rayskin and black coloured woven silk. The menuki (ornaments) are in the form of crabs.

    The tang nakako (shape) is futsu with a nakago-jiri (tang’s tip) shaped in the haagari pattern with taka-no-ha yasurime (kesho tang file marks).

    On one side the tang is signed.

    Common activities like ko-nie and sunagashi can be seen on the blade.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 27 inches (68.5 cm) and the sword overall length is 38 inches (96 cm). The sword in its scabbard length is 41.5 inches (103 cm). The complete weight is 1.25 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade is in good condition for its age, free of rust with a couple minor nicks on the edge of the tip.

    The hamon is partially visible due to repeated polishing.

    The woven silk has the expected wear but remains undamaged.

    All its fittings are in good condition.

    The scabbard is good with signs of wear.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £20 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
