Kubikiri aka Infamous Head Cutter Tanto / Nata in Koshirae

Recommended Posts

A scarce Kubikiri Tanto! Also known as the infamous head cutter Tanto while there is a vivid discussion wheter it is just a myth or this is just a Nata / Gardnerers tool. You be your own judge only limite dby you more or less vivid imagination. These blades are rarely seen anyways.

 

As far as thei sword goes I have had it completely restored since it came out of the woodwork in poor condition. The blade was polished, the Tsukamaki was redone, the Saya repaired witzh new horn fittings made and a pair of Menuki where added. There is an AOI Art certificate for the Menuki whoch I haven't taken a picture of.

 

The blade seems to be late Edo periode. There are no flaws in the blade and it features a tight Suguha Hamon.

 

It features a nice set of Kodugu. Cherry blossom / tree Fuchi / Kashira. A nice Mokume Iron Tsuba original to the blade is also in place. The Kozuka was also original to the blade. It is a very simple iron type. The Saya was restored with some lacquer losses.

 

A rare piece that will be a nice addition to any collection.

 

USD 1990.00 ... Buyer is to cover all payment fees (e.g. PayPal 4%). Worldwide DHL shipping is USD 40.00. Blade is located in Europe so no import tax.
