Shinto wak auction buy


Recommended Posts

Came in the mail today,  from the online pics which showed no nakago I took a flyer due to the tsuka having the remnants of fine silk ito and the tsuba looked better than ordinary.   


  Soo, the handle was on tight and when I got it off..... Sugoi,  both the wak and tsuba were signed.  Tsuba has some extraordinary gold inlay rim work.

Best regards,

I had a think about this one Bob but the Aussie dollar is hopeless now and I just didn't get around to it . Glad you wound up with it . What this does show, I think, is that there are still good interesting things out there for people who are prepared to beat the bushes and use their eye . Of course those who cant recognize quality ( and there seem to be a lot of them ) will be wasting their time doing this . Well done
