Hi,

you've an interesting old sword, but are you sure that is an ō-kissaki? For me remember a shōbu zukuri tsukurikomi.  :)

Yes it's ō-kissaki as there is visible yokote rather than a continuous flow into the boshi. :)

Yes, I see the "yokote". The sword is old and mumei, you can read this interesting topic about tsukurikomi and representative schools and smiths by Markus Sesko: https://markussesko....tei-1-sugata-1/

 

Good luck for sale  :)

Honor is something all men are born with. It can't be taken from you, nor can it be granted; it must only not be lost.

Reduced to £1800 - and no lower!

Current financial uncertainty means buying swords from abroad just got much more expensive...
