    ~ A Carved Ivory Japanese Tanto Dagger & Scabbard, Late 19th Century ~


    Both the scabbard and the grip are finely carved in high relief in the traditional Japanese style, depicting a story with three characters standing one on top of each other: a landlord on the top, a soldier beneath him and a woman beneath the soldier.

    The woman takes care of a house nearby, the soldier guards the city wall and the landlord, above the last two (closer to the stars) is overseeing them.

    The scabbard is made of two ivory parts and the grip from a third one. All three parts are almost equal in length.

    The pommel is open ended as is the scabbard.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blades length is 6.7 inches (17 cm) and the overall length of the dagger and scabbard is 12 inches (30.5 cm).

    It weighs 225 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade has some minor surface rust, the edge is nick free.

    The middle of the scabbard was cracked and crudely repaired at one point in time, all pieces are still present.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or the knife can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
