    ~ Circa 1450 Japanese Ten Tanto Muromachi Nanboku-cho Era ~


    The tang of the dagger is signed and dates to the Emperor Go-Hanazono Era (1428-1464).

    It is a beautifully decorated piece with a nicely aged puched hole Yari blade.

    The steel habaki (ferule) is decorated with oblique lines and dots creating a ‘falling stars’ pattern.

    The two seppa (spacers) are made of iron.

    Its tsuba (guard) is made of blued iron shaped as a lily flower.

    The mekugi’s hole (peg) is decorated with two brass flower shaped fittings.

    The tsuka (grip) is made of black lacquered bamboo and decorated on one side with a gold fly in relief with mother of pearl wings and on the other side with a snail in relief.

    The foliate steel decorated fuchi (sleeve) has a mathimh kashira pommel.

    The kashira is decorated with a heart shaped suspension ring.

    The scabbard is decorated with similar kojiri (end cap) and koiguchi (scabbard mouth) as the grip.

    The scabbard is decorated with a black lacquered beetle climbing on gold inlay grass.

    The nakago (tang) is made in the kengyo style with gayaku-taka-no-ha yasurime (tang marks).
