    ~ Circa 1530-1560 Japanese Civil Wakazashi Sword ~


    The blade of this wakazashi was forged between 1530-1560 in the Bisen province in the Koto period.

    The sword comes with the traditional bamboo made scabbard, covered in brown leather.

    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 hamon is shaped in the ‘Toran’ (billowing) pattern and the boshi (tip) hammon pattern is omaru (large circle).

    The swords decorated fittings are made of steel and copper.

    The steel tsuba’s (guard) decorations depicts a pair of samurai.

    The two seppa (spacers) are made of copper. There is an extra spacer on the grip side made of leather, acting as a safety catch.

    The hibachi (blade collar) is made of two copper parts, the top one being decorated with a pattern of crossed lines.

    The fushi (sleeve) is made of gold plated relief engraved copper.

    The tsuka (grip) is made of bamboo covered with white rayskin and black woven silk.

    The gold plated menuki (ornaments) are shaped as branches of fruit.

    The saya (scabbard) is made of black lacquered bamboo fitted with one kurikata (knob/suspension ring) and a brown military WW2 leather cover.

    The nakago (the tang) is made in the futsu pattern with a Kuri-Jiri point and Taka-no-ha yasurime (file marks).

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 22 inches (56 cm), the grip length is 8.2 inches (21 cm) and the sword with scabbard length is 34 inches (86.3 cm). The complete weight is 1Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade has some barely visible nicks on the edge (the largest one an inch down from the hibachi) and minor blemishes from the folding process.

    The hamon is visible along with some "Hataraki" or "activities" indicating a good quality blade.

    The woven silk is shiny from wear and remains firmly bound.

    All its fittings are in excellent condition with general wear.

    The gold plated sleeve has lost part of its gilding.

    The scabbard is in solid order with some signs of wear.

    ~ Postage ~

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