Approximate Age of this Sword please.

Dear Glenn.


Well you know that it's been shortened, right?  If it had a mei that looks like it will have gone along with the original nakago.  Narrow shinogi ji and overall shape, I would start with sue koto and work from there.  We don't have a useful photograph of the kissaki which is a shame.

Tsuba is one of the regular designs for Echizen Kinai saku and it seem to have a kogai where you might expect a kodzuka.  Nice saya.


Any use?


All the best.
