ANCIENT BLADE**1650’s-1700 Edo Period Japanese Katana Hand Forged Sword With Best Quality Shin Shinto / Meiji Period Mounts & Colourful Multi Lacquered Scabbard With Cord & Expert Assessment. ED 2543 - ED 2543

This sword has been examined by UK Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg and a copy of his hand written notes accompany the sword. In extracts of his notes he states “An Un-signed edo period blade 1600’s to 1790’s (early part 1650’s to 1700). A good quality well forged blade with a very complicated hamon (irregular) which is a continuous band of nioi crystals speckled with nie in valleys with tightly forged wood grain. Mounted in Shin Shinto / Meiji Period fittings. A very bright multi colour lacquer saya in perfect condition (possibly re-done 20th Century). Tsuba is iron mokko shape inlaid with brass & copper (gilded gold) depicting a Tiger by a river under crescent moon, very good quality late Edo and needs research to identify man or school. Tsuka very good original condition with good quality un-signed soft metal Fuchi Kashira depicting Samurai fighting on water in boats. Menuki are top quality in shakudo & gold depicting a bundle of decorative war arrows. A Lovely looking Katana with top quality mounts. Would fit in any sword collection. To identify maker would have to go to japan for NBTHK or NTHK papers”. In his illustrations of the blade and tang he notes “ Nice dark patination on Nakago consistent with early Edo manufacture. File marks Sujikai right slant and identifies a polishers mark’ also ‘Cutting edge is 63.5cm total length 80cm”. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2543
