    ANCIENT BLADE C1350 – 1450’s Japanese Koto Ko-Tachi Imperial Daimyo Lord / Nobleman’s, Emperor’s Court Sword With Minamoto Clan Signed Tang, Cords & Edo Period Scabbard With Royal Family Kiri Mons & Hangers With Expert’s Assessment. ED 2231 - ED 2231

    This is a spectacular Court sword which would have been carried by a member of the Imperial Royal family in the Emperor’s Court. The ancient blade is in the form and structure made pre 1600 possibly 1350’s to 1450’s. The Court sword is 30” overall length and the clean sharp blade’s cutting edge is 20 ½”” length. The pierced tang has Japanese characters which are indistinct. A UK Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg provided an assessment of this sword and scabbard which is included with this piece. The description describes the blade and fittings as: ‘An ancient blade Koto (old sword period), pre 1600 could be 1350’s to 1450’s. ½ the Kanji from 2 characters (in the signature) are missing with a double mekuki ana punched through them, mounted asa-tachi (small) in top quality edo period mounts for use as a court sword by a Daimyo Lord. The Saya has kiri mons used by relatives of the imperial family. A dramatic looking Tachi worthy of further research in Japan’. The accompanying paperwork also has black and white image of the marks on the tang with note indicating ‘Minamoto Clan name’. The price for this rare Japanese piece with ancient blade & Imperial Japanese Royal family connections includes UK delivery. ED 2231
