Shobu wakizashi mei

Recommended Posts

Hi all, long time lurker, first time poster here.

 

I'm novice at this, but have tried and tried and gotten nowhere on this mei. I'm hoping it is simple and I'm just making it too complicated. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Dan!

 

Would you be so kind and upload a couple of pics of the blade. The nakago (tang) looks, well, somewhat suspicious to me... I hope I am wrong...

 

BR, Veli

Here's the blade. It is 14.5" nagasa, 1.125" wide at the machis.

 

Forewarning, this blade was recovered from a novice polisher who, luckily, didn't damgage it beyond repair. I do own this sword, so no commercial interet on my part.

 

Thanks you, Chris

Those measurements seem a little off to me, but what do i know.

 

I'm not experienced enough to give you advice, but i would say without better pictures and just the photo from your first post, seems not genuine, or abused.
