New Tantō

Recommended Posts

Was doing some photographs of a new tantō early this week that turned out nice. You can really see the actively call (imozuru 芋蔓) literally meaning 'potato vine' in and around the hamon as horizontal dark lines. This is a characteristic feature is seen in Shinto and Shinshinto works of Satsuma Province.  Also attached is the overall view of the small tantō.  I am getting Markus Sesko to help me with the signature which I have posted about earlier.  Enjoy and politely discuss.

Not really John, because they are very long and often cover the length of the hamon. It is a kantei point for Satsuma great smiths.

Well, I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but to me David's tanto hamon looks more like sunagashi than "classical" imo-no-tsuru??

 

BaZZa.
