    ~ 18th Century Japanese Wakizashi ~


    Here we have a delightful wakizashi that appears to be from the 18th century, the blade is in good condition with a few minor blemishes in the steel from the time of forging including some quite interesting imperfections.

    The sword is of small to average size for a wakizashi with a beautiful hamon on the blade, the blade bears some marks from the time of forging but that simply is a testament to manufacture that a blade with imperfections has survived so well.

    The tsuba appears to take the form of petals with some very fine gilt work, the tsuba is signed with a long and detailed signature.

    The tang is unsigned and has sustained some damage, there is what appears to be a white substance on the tang, we have left intact and not attempted to remove.

    The tsuka (grip) has been wrapped in black shagreen and then a very fine black cloth, the fittings have been blackened and gilt with bird motifs.

    The original scabbard has a delightful mottled finish.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 21 inches (53.5 cm) long.

    The sword is 29 inches (74 cm) long.

    The sword weighs 850g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in excellent condition for its age and it has been looked after with care.

    There are some imperfections in the blade from the time of forging but there are no spots of pitting or blackening on the blade.

    There is a small spot of oxidisation on the blade collar.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be inspected in our shop.
