Hi All,

 

Up for sale is this shinto period wakizashi by Gassan.  It has really nice ayasugi hada which was very difficult to photograph.  I think this is the Gassan that worked in about 1624 and was from Owari and also worked under name Nobutaka.  It has a nice 2 kanji signature Gassan.  The cutting edge of the blade is 21 inches long.  It has a wonderful fuchi and one really nice menuki.  This is exactly as I got it and just have too many projects in the pipeline so I am selling it so someone else can polish it.  I can arrange a nice polish for about $800 for the new owner.  I can also arrange for the restoration of the fittings.

 

As I said the ayasugi hada was difficult to photograph but you can see it very clear in hand!

 

$3700 plus shipping and paypal if aplicable.  Thanks for looking and if you have any questions please dont hesitate to msg me though this site or email me at brannow_NO_SPAM@artswords.com  Please remove the _NO_SPAM from the email address.
