Shinshinto Mino Wakizashi, KaneFusa, VGC
/ Good Polish, sold
A fine Mino Shin shinto Wakizashi by one of the Kanefusa family,
in good polish.
Probably one of the Kansei
era Kanefusas, a well above average shin shinto wakizashi with
lovely Mokume Hada (grain) and Asaki-notare ha (straight but undulating)
hamon. Complete with high quality finely decorated iron tsuba and
kozuka (companion knife).
The 14 3/4 cutting edge (measured from habaki inset to point) blade
is in very good condition and high polish, some scuffing, some tarnishing,
but overall very good. The tsuaka and furniture thereof in good
condition, some shrinkage of the same (rayskin) but not too much.
The lacquered saya in good order, some age and wear; again, not
too much. The kozuka and gokatana companion knife sheathes well,
as does the sword itself.
A truly lovely, quality, above average shin shinto wakizashi for
just £(too late, sorry, now sold, though we will divulge the
original sales price for a small fee). Please quote item reference
number O02 (1359). Full sized / additional photos available upon
