Shuriken

Recommended Posts

Very rare and unusual examples of shuriken.  I believe they are old (Edo) but cannot be sure since it appears that the handles have been overcleaned.  Moreover, I cannot make out hada or hamon in the points but such small weapons made not have had visible hada or hamon in the first place. 

The pair is matched measuring 10.3 and 10.2 (tip is slightly chipped)  Points measure 4.7 and 4.6 cm respectively. 

Each is signed but I cannot make them out well enough to translate. Although the characters are very small, I believe they have been chiseled in as opposed to stamped because there are minor variations between the two.

Because they are so unusual, I cannot be sure about their age so please look at the pictures and ask all questions in advance.  I am happy to answer or to supply additional pics as needed.  All sales on these items are final

$240 each or both for $425
