Wide wakizashi by Matsubara Hidemune


Recommended Posts

This is a very large and wide hirazukuri wakizashi by the gendai smith Matsubara Hidemune. He was born Matsubara Ryuhei in 1930 and likes in Gifu, Japan. This blade is a beautiful piece of work with a very wide o-gonome hamon with ashi and thick kinsuji running throughout. The mihada is wide and the blade has a solid silver habaki in a koke-style. Jihada is a very fine ko-itame with ji-nie. The Hidemune is in shirasaya and very nice polish which is almost perfectly intact, except for one spot in which is looks like someone has cleaned a stain with uchiko (shown in the photos). 

 

$3,500 (plus shipping & PayPal)

 

Best regards,

Ray
