    SADDA MITSU Sword Smith Wakizashi Short Sword Swords

    BladesSwordsUsed£ 850
    An original Japanese Wakizashi Sword made for one handed use with ancient blade and scabbard. The sword is as found, un-messed with and would make a great restoration project. It measures 17 ½” overall with an 11 ¾” hand forged ancient blade made during the Shinto period 1598-1800 in the Mino school form. The blade is has no rust. The hilt has brass and copper fittings with voided iron tsuba and ornate Dragon Menuki. It has fish skin covered grip with antique Baleen Whale keratin binding which is tight and undamaged. The tang is signed by the sword smith ‘SADDA MITSU’ a Mino smith working during the Shinto period. The signature was also used later by the smith Gassan Nobru 3rd Living Treasure Swordsmith born 1907 (see page 148 of Slough’s book Modern Japanese Swordsmiths), however, we believe this blade to be by the original SADDA MITSU. The sword has a lacquered wood scabbard with brass throat mount. The price for this piece which is worthy of further research and restoration includes UK delivery. Sn 14217 ...Read full description
