    ~ Circa 1750 Japanese Court Long Sword In The Tachi Form With Solid Silver Fittings & Scabbard ~


    The tsuka (grip) is made of bamboo covered with white ray skin and a blue silk cord. The gilt brass menuki (ornaments) are shaped in the form of a dragon on both sides.

    The kashira (pommel) is made of silver with foliate detailing. Its brass suspension ring is present.

    The fuchi (collar/sleeve) is made of silver.

    On the grip side are attached gilt brass four seppa (spacers) and on the blade side can be seen another two.

    The blade is made in the 'Shinogi-Kukuri' style, the mune (blade back) is shaped in the 'Ihori' style and its kissaki (point) is long.

    The habaki (blade locket/ferrule) is made of brass.

    The iron tsuba is flower shaped and has been decorated with a scene of a farmer working the fields at the base of a mountain.

    The saya (scabbard) is made of red lacquered bamboo, fitted with two gilt brass obitori and kanagu (suspension rings), a silver kashiwaba (fittings on the lower end) and a silver koiri (end-cap/chape), identical with the one on the grip.

    Its kurikata (knob) is similar with the grip being built from the same blue silk cord and in the same style.

    All silver pieces have a similar foliate engraving.

    The tang is signed.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade has a length of 28.5 inches (72.4 cm), the sword has an overall length of 39.3 inches (99.7 cm) and with scabbard has an overall length of 40.7 inches (103.4 cm). It weighs 1.33 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The saya (scabbard) has some minor chipping to the lacquer along with a few significant scratches, as seen in the pictures.

    The gilt finish on some of its fittings is worn in places, as expected for its age.

    The blade is excellent.

    A very presentable piece.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
