    ANCIENT SUPERB WELL FORGED BLADE**1650’s-1680’s Osaka Shinto Japanese Katana Long Sword Blade With Smith Signed Tang ‘Echigo No Kami Kane Sada’ With Wood Shira Saya Resting Mounts, Cloth Carry Bag & Expert Assessment Notes. ED 2455 - ED 2455

    This ancient blade Japanese katana sword blade has been assessed by UK based Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg. A copy of his assessment, translation of the tang signature, rubbing of the tang and illustration of the blade accompanies this item. In exerts from the assessment he states ‘A superb well forged blade inscribed ‘Echigo No Kami Kane Sada’. This blade was definitely made in the period 1650’s-1680’s. In super polish, a lustrous hamon of Nioi crystals with Nie valley bottoms. It has Ko-Tame Hada (wood grain). Blade edge been cut down suriage by having notches moved up the blade by at least 2-3 inches. Original ana plugged, new one cut in blade steel. Signs of age & re-mounting. Definitely an Osaka Shinto piece with its shape & big bumpy temper line. I have checked the mei with my reference books, 4 different Oshigata. It has lots of similarities to this smith who made superior blades. It also has his forging & work styles. Needs to be sent to japan for expert assessment by NBTHK or NTHK (panel) to prove the signature. Has top quality silver foil covered double habaki’. He describes and illustrates the ink mark on the saya as being ‘ Personal seal (kakihan) of an original owner’. In his illustration of the blade and tang characteristics he states ‘cutting edge is just over 25 ½”, decorative scratches are sujikai. Width at machi 32mm’. A later cloth carry back with draw string also comes with the sword. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2455
