This is the first of two excellent naginatanaoshi wakizashi from the Shimada school. This piece has been attributed to den Sunshu Shimada Yoshisuke. The shodai Yoshisuke worked in Suruga and was the founder of the Shimada school. This sword is papered to a later generation circa Tenbun (天文) 1532-1555. I believe that time period would indicate the yondai (fourth generation). This piece exhibits an excellent quality hamon in the Soshu tradition, with bright ko-nie, kinsuji and sunagashi. The jihada is a crisp itame with ji-nie and chikei. There is a bo-hi on one side and both bo-hi and futatsuji-hi on the reverse. The blade is in perfect polish with a high-quality gold foil habaki fitted to the naginata-hi.

Any questions, please just let me know.

Best regards,
Ray

The second is an o-suriage naginatanaoshi wakizashi, which is papered to the Shimada school. This sword has a very wide and active gonome midare hamon with much sunagashi. The hamon is an itame which is slightly coarse in spots (Please also note there are some kitae-ware in the shinogi-ji). The polish is a bit hazy and could be improved. This sword is in shirasaya with gold foil habaki. NBTHK Hozon.

Ray, the paperwork gives 'around Tembun' (1532-1555).

Thanks Jean :). The Yoshisuke here is especially beautiful. If anyone were looking for a beautiful Soshu-den...

I know you list both as wakizashi, Ray, but could you please list overall & nagasa lengths? I have my own naginatanaoshi, but one of the members of my sword club is also looking, & I don't think he's on NMB.
