O-Tanto/Ko-Wakizashi for Sale
I am reposting this with all new pictures in the hope that folks can see it and appreciate it more fully
Signed Kane Masu... very similar to the one featured as Tanto of the Quarter in Bushido Magazine (see last picture).
There are many generations of this smith spanning late Koto into early Shinto (1460-1660). I am not sure which one made this and so am also uncertain about the exact age.
Mino School- Gunome temper with itame hada.
A few spots of loose grain and some minor chips but otherwise quite sound. Well cut grooves.
Measures 41.7 cm total length by 2.7 cm wide. Nagasa (cutting edge) is 30.3 cm.
All major features of the blade can be seen so it can be enjoyed as is or would be worth a polish.
Saya is a bit longer (46.1 cm) but it is original as far as I can tell.
The same on the handle is high quality. Fuchi is ishime (stone pattern) shibuichi.
Habaki is good quality silver foil.
Again, the koshirae is worthy of completion with tsuba and menuki.
1199 USD plus shipping and paypal
