Eiroku era (1558-1570) Mino Wakizashi, Kaneaki

Sales enquiries

The signature on the mei appears to be Kaneaki, though possibly Kaneyuki. Given the age of the blade, the only perfect match we can find is Eiroku era Mino smith Kaneaki. This is quite a long wakizashi with a 23 inch blade, falling just short of katana length.

Blade with some ware, in good condition, hamon just visible. Modern "furniture" (tsuba, tsuka, saya, etc.) in good order, though the ito (braided grip wrapping) does not fully cover the tsuka (grip) (there are small gaps and the ito is a little loose). The same (rayskin) may be faux. Saya (scabbard) in good order. The sword sheathes and draws well enough.

A respectable and very old blade for only £? (too late, now sold) . Please quote item reference number AC04 (0148). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
