Hi Folks,

Do you think this wakizashi is made as such, or is it a cut down earlier piece that is thin from many polishes? Or something else..


I don't see fumbari, and the nakago patination looks not too old, so I am assuming it has been shortened.


I know it's not a treasure, just want to understand it a little better.


Many thanks in advance,


Warm regards,


Jon B

Looks o-suriage to me.  In the past, I would have shied away from such slender blades, but when they are well preserved, I have learned to appreciate their individual elegance.
