Wakizashi / O-Tanto With Very Interesting Hamon

Thoughts? Perhaps Kanefusa Midare?

 

I'm having a hard time placing this one as it's a fairly mixed hamon. The length also makes me think it could be either wakizashi or o-tanto.

 

Talked to a few people about speculation on jidai and gotten very mixed replies.

 

All input welcome. :)

I really like the hamon, Rob, & would probably call it gunome-midare, with a lot of tobiyaki. I have a wakizashi that looks a lot like yours. Hacho is 34 cm, which makes it technically a wakizashi, but you might get away with calling it an o-tanto. Nice blade!

Dear Rob.

 

I agree with Ken,  a nice thing.  As a matter of interest what is the kasane and what happens to the kasane at or about the machi?

All the best. 

 

 

Sadly I have no calipers to measure with just yet but I will attempt to approximate for you tomorrow.
