Sales enquiries

This is a wakizashi with a lot of potential. It needs a polish. The point has lost its tiniest tip (the tip can be reformed without any great issue). The signature appears to be Kaneyoshi with the seeming use of fairly rare characters for the signature, which examples are known to belong to two Mino smiths, Bunmei (1469-1487) / Taiei (1521-1528) era, but you make up your own minds. We are selling this item, which has a well and traditionally made blade with some considerable age at a price shinshintos go for.

The 20 1/2 inch / 52 cm (Nagasa) blade is in sound condition. The furniture is aged, especially the saya and tsuka (handle); the ito is weak and almost apart in places, the rayskin / same has a hairline split one side, the seppa are not much to speak about. But, the tsuba is a beauty.

Great as it is (for the price) or one to spend some money on to surely make into superb wakizashi. Yours, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AB65 (0123). Further / full sized images available upon request.
