  1. A wakizashi of 20" or so. Signed "iga no kami kinmichi" (no kiku or date). Flamboyant choji midare hamon. Has Mishina boshi. Blade is literally flawless, healthy, and in very good polish. It has minor scratches from removing from shirasaya and a stain on the edge (photo 5). Nothing serious and rest barely worth mentioning. Comes in an exceptionally high quality shirasaya with (mekugi accents) and a standard sword bag. Not sure which generation but I'm leaning on late Shinto. I have seen several blades with mei possibly by same hand. However they weren't papered and I didn't necessarily agree with the sellers generation attribution (one was 3rd, another 7th etc).. It will be a fun one to research for sure. As per my usual "fire sales" I'm letting it go at my lowest price ..only $SOLD+ shipping and PP. First come first served. No holds. Immediate payment required. 24 hr inspection period and guaranteed to pass hozon or nthk or your money back. I haven't included much info or pics due to time constraints but I will update post with more if needed.

  2. Joel, a polish won't fix a opening like this nor should it be considered just to resolve a cosmetic scratch. This kind of thinking will reduce any sword to a mere toothpick in less than a couple hundred years. In order to truly respect and appreciate your sword and future acquisitions- Please consider this. Support longevity! Enjoy :)
