Sold Item Notice

A good and well furnished Shinshinto wakizashi with what appears to be a very feint Shinshinto Toran-Ha hamon; the blade has been overly western polished, so the hamon is very feint.

The 49cm (from mune-machi to tip / cutting section) blade is in good condition, though has been western cleaned; the hamon is just visible, as are some small ware (forging wriggles). The furniture is all good quality; the black lacquered saya has a smallish hair crack (from dehydration shrinkage most likely). The same (rayskin) along one side of the tsuka (grip) has split from dehydration. The tsuba alone is probably worth £150+

A very respectable wakizashi for a very good (low) price. Please quote item reference J38 (1116). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
