This is an truly massive and powerful shinto wakizashi. The sword is 44.2cm in length with a 34mm mihaba and 9.5mm kasane. The blade is flawless and shows beautiful workmanship, done in Soshu-den. The jihada is itame with dense ji-nie that appear as yubashiri in spots. The hamon is an extremely wild hitatsura in nie-deki. Boshi is o-maru with a long turnback that has areas which descend back down towards the shinogi. There are areas of muneyaki further down the mune. Overall a spectacular sword. In polish with a high quality shirasaya and shakudo foil habaki. There is a mei of Omura Kaboku which I do not have confidence in. Kabuko was a famous smith and an interesting character, and there are many forgeries of his mei (http://www.militaria...in-eccentric/).

 

$3,250 (plus shipping and PayPal).

 

Best regards,

Ray

9.5mm... if this blade ever got blunted or chipped, you'd still have yourself a handy kabutowari...
