1 wakizashi sword with fabulous ken horimono

 

The carving on this sword isn't of the ordinary variety--work like this is done by only the very best carvers.     

 

 

This antique Samurai wakizashi is signed on the nakago/tang:  'Kashu ju Sukehira'.   I guarantee the signature.  The reverse side of the nakago is dated February 1846.

 

The blade measures 19 3/8" (49.2 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.  One side of the blade has a Japanese ken horimono as well as two bohi.  The reverse side has one deep bohi, and one thin bohi.  As mentioned, the skill demonstrated by the horimono work is exceptional. 

 

 

 

Condition:

The blade is in excellent condition.  The blade is in original Japanese polish--no polish is needed.  There are a few tiny nail-catcher type nicks.  The black lacquer saya has an occasional small mark or scratch. 

There are no openings of any kind.  The temper line/hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy. 

 

$4500

 

Thank you.

So when you say " I guarantee the signature" what does that mean?
Also you haven't listed many blade details or features other than about your personal opinion of the horimono.
And the pictures are not that good.

Thank you, Paul!!

 

Jamie, when we in the sword business--dealers and collectors--say that 'we guarantee the signature', we mean that the signature is good (not gimei), or your money back.  You mentioned that my photos are not good, gee...thanks I guess.  Tell me how you really feel.   :)

 

I will post a link to the listing on my website shortly.  The photos on my site are posted with higher resolution.  The photos here are meant to be helpful, but many guys (and gals) will request additional photos if interested in a sword.
