    ~ Circa 1700 Edo Period Japanese Bo-Hi Tanto ~


    It is made in the ‘hira-zukuri’ pattern. Its mune (blade back) is shaped in the 'Ihori' style and its kissaki (point) is long.

    The hamon is sugu (straight), the boshi (tip) is komaru (small circle) and the hada (grain) is not clearly visible due to the fact that the blade was polished recently.

    The habaki (blade locket/ferrule) is made of copper and is not decorated.

    The tsuba (guard) is made of iron and shaped as a dragon. Only one gilded cooper speppa (spacer) is present on the blades side.

    The fushi (sleeve) is decorated with the embossed representation of horses and vegetation.

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

    The menuki (ornaments) are made of black painted brass.

    The saya (scabbard) is made of bamboo covered with rayskin and fitted with one obitori.

    The signed kozuka (small knife) is marked on the blade and its black painted brass grip is decorated with a golden embossed representation of a landscape.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 12 inches (30.5 cm) and the overall length of the tanto is 17 inches (43.2 cm). The overall length if the tanto and scabbard is 19.5 inches (49.4 cm).

    The kozuka’s blade is 8.5 inches (21.5 cm) long and its overall length is 8.2 inches (21cm).

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade is in fair condition with no rust, some amount of darkening and a small crack (6 mm) at the base of the blade. The blade was repolished recently.

    The mekugi (peg) is missing.

    The woven is a grubby from handling as expected for its age.

    The scabbard is missing the small knife safety catch ring.

    The blade of the kozuka small knife has developed some serious rust and is detached from the grip due to a metal fracture, but the stamps are still visible. Its grip has lost some of its finish.

    ~ Postage ~

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