Sales enquiries

This is a superb looking wakizashi. Although the hamon is only just visible, the blade is in extremely good order (some small fukure one side, no nicks to the cutting edge) and set off beautifully by the high quality fuchi and kashira hilt fittings, plus well made tsuba and tailored seppa. The original saya / scabbard was crushed (fortunately while the blade was drawn), so I had made a standard simple black saya to protect the blade, etc.

Ashu Ju Aki Kanefusa

Tenmei Shichi Nen Ni Gatsu Hi (February 1787)

The 19 5/8 inch blade is in very good condition, no signs of crude cleaning, no real flaws apart from tiny speckling effect and a small amount of fukure. The tsuka / hilt is equally very good, the same rayskin has split one side as to be expected. The furniture is very well made. The fuchi signed. A great sword and surely a terrific investment. Please quote reference number A10 (589). Full sized / further images available upon request.
