    ~ Circa 1550’s Japanese Wakisachi ~


    The kadzuka (small knife) and the blade are both signed. The blade is dated to around 1550.

    The blade is well preserved, made in the ‘shinogi-kukuri’ pattern. Its mune (blade back) is shaped in the 'Ihori' style and its kissaki (point) is medium.

    The hamon is not visible anymore due to repolishing.

    The fittings are made of gilded copper with brick wall pattern engravings, except for the habaki (blade locket/ferrule) which is decorated with oblique lines.

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

    The gilt menuki (ornaments) are in the form of a dragon.

    The iron tsuba (guard) is decorated with embossed shapes of a dragon. Both seppa (spacers) are made of copper.

    The saya (scabbard) is made of black lacquered bamboo fitted with one kurikata (knob/suspension ring).

    The tang is signed. It is made in the shiribari style with kiri tang tip and sujikai tang file marks.

    The kozuka (small knife) is marked as well and its iron grip is decorated with an embossed golden horse.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade has a length of 17.9 inches (45.5 cm), the sword has an overall length of 24.4 inches (62 cm) and with scabbard has an overall length of 26 inches (65.9 cm).

    The kozuka’s blade length is 4.9 inches (12.5 cm) and its overall length is 8.9 inches (22 cm).

    It weighs 830 g.


    ~ Condition ~

    The blade is in very good condition for its age. It was recently repolished.

    The woven silk on the grip is worn.

    The guard is a little loose.

    The scabbard has numerous nicks and some chips (the largest under the suspension ring), as seen in the pictures.

    The small knife’s blade darkened but is free of rust. Its grip is lightly bubbled.

    ~ Postage ~

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