Sales enquiries

Izumi no Kami Kunisada (2nd generation / Inoue Shinkai) has exceptionally high Jojo saku ranking and his blades sell for a lot of money (see here); we believe this to be an authentic blade by him, though we are selling this wakizashi at a much lower price just in case. In any event, it is a high quality sword and well worth our price. NB There is a (polished over) small rust patch shown in the photos which we assert is not as bad as the photos alludes (it was taken at an angle and therefore shows some shadow).
