    ~ Meiji Period Carved Bone Tanto ~


    This is a carved bone Tanto from the late Meiji Period. These kind of swords were sold between 1870 and 1930, often to tourists. They are referred to as "hocho tetsu" (kitchen steel) as they would have been purchased purely for the quality of the carvings and would come with lower quality blades.

    The tanto has a Hira-Zukuri (flat surface blade) style blade with a maru (rounded) mune.

    The blade cannot be removed from the grip.

    The hilt and scabbard carved with an assortment of samurai warriors and retainers to quite an acceptable standard with a decent depth.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade 11.5 is inches (29cm) long.

    The sword in the scabbard is 22 inches (55cm) long.

    The sword weighs 451 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blades edge is nick free.

    The brass Habaki (blade collar) has tarnished.

    The scabbard is complete but with a few small cracks.

    The Kojiri (scabbard tip) is not a perfect fit.

    ~ Postage ~

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