Dear Martin.

 

Welcome, please add your name to all your posts as we all do here.  I am not sure what you want to hear about your sword.  It is a perfectly genuine antique sword, an unsigned wakizashi in older polish with low end but genuine mounts which is papered to a Takada school smith.  I think Teruyuki of which there were four generations between 1650 and 1800.

 

The Takada school is not generally highly regarded, it is suggested that they are not art swords.  I have always found that a rather strange statement and individual swords are often very good.  

 

Hope this helps.

 

All the best.


Geraint
