Japanese Wakizashi, Unsigned, Hira Zukuri
Blade, Kozuka Knife, sold
In good overall condition, an unsigned Shin Shinto Japanese Wakizashi
with Hira Zukuri Blade, complete with signed Kozuka Knife.
A complete shin shinto wakizashi with kozuka-gokatana utility knife.
The 15 1/8 inch nagasa (cutting edge section) Hira Zukuri (flat)
blade is in good condition but has some scuffs and a nick to the
forward cutting edge. Blade a little loose now in the tsuka / hilt
as a result of taking it apart to expose the nakago / tang. Tsuba
/ guard has a little light rust, nothing much. The same / ray skin
has some drying splits. The fittings of high quality are good. The
lacquered saya / scabbard is good but with wear. The signed and
well embellished kozuka-gokatana has some rust but not too much.
Both the sword and knife sheath and draw well.
A good complete example and just £? (too late, now sold).
Please quote item reference number AF23 (1075). Further / full sized
pictures available upon request.
