Japanese wakizashi Hira zukuri . The blade is very heavy and solid it is a meat cleaver..... The scabbard is made of very high quality wood with deer skin embedded in the saya... you would have a hard time finding another one like it $2500 plus shipping and paypal.

It's the dimensions/weight/strength that is being presented as unusual here, nothing to do with regular wakizashi. Need something for scale, like another regular wakizashi to see if the nakago is regular size and the blade is larger, making the nakago look small.
