**ANCIENT LATE 16th CENTURY MOMOYAMA PERIOD BLADE**Japanese Hand Forged Tanto Made From Wakizashi Short Sword Blade In Shira Saya Mounts Possibly Carried As A Suicide Dirk In WW2 & Expert Assessment. ED 2478 - ED 2478

This Tanto has been assessed by UK Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg. A copy of his hand written notes and illustrations accompany the sword. In extracts from his notes he states “This was once a small Wakizashi in ancient times. Been cut down from tang end (suriage) a long time ago. Bottom of tang has very old pitted rust graduating to much lighter. Any signature has long gone possibly crudely shortened again pre war & mounted in Shira saya which has been strengthened with split bamboo, possibly carried as a suicide knife in 2nd war. Cannot work out school of work because original tang shape lost with re-shaping. Has been buffed bright obscuring any hamon temper line and Hada grain. Needs re-polishing by an expert to bring out workmanship. Blade could easily date to Momoyama period late 16th century. An interesting example”. In his illustrations he the tang end as being chisel cut and having a drilled hole late 19th Century. He describes the blade as having a fake double edge, blade shape Hira-Zukuri (No Yakote line). Cutting edge 24.5 cm overall length 34.25 cm”. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2478
