    Gassan Sadakazu Katana

    The nakago is signed : Osaka ju Gassan Sadakazu Kore tsukuru (August 1893) Meiji 26 year - 8 Month - Horimono made by himself
  5. I've fond this katana at an estate, the horimono is well carved and also the sword seem to be well forged, hamon it's a very good choji with many hataraki, and also it seems to have also midare utsuri. The nagasa is a bit short only 64,5 with 1,8 of sori. What do you think about it?
  6. I've found this blade it will be shinshinto, have a nagasa of 56 cm and a kasane of 0,9 cm and the nakago is 26 cm, and over the horimono the blade became u no kubi zukuri, the mei is not totally readable but have a kiku shoei. Anyone hava an opinion about it? _____________________________________________________________________________________ Stefano P.

  9. Can anyone help me on traslation of the tang of this nakago, on the ura side is write Shigemitsu, on the omote side i've tried to translate Meiji 13 ........ Thanks on advance -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stefano P.
  10. Sorry but this sword before the suriage was an odachi? I ask that beacouse is about 70 cm of nagasa with only 1 cm of sori the kasane is very big for a kamakura blade and also there isn't any funbari and the width at the kissaki is too large for a normal tachi. Stefano P.
