Sales enquiries

Showing a fair amount "Fukure" (small forging flecks) on the 87.8 cm / 67 cm cutting edge blade, I believe this to be quite old, maybe 14C. Very indistinct asaki-notare style hamon. Attractive simple wooden and brass mounts. The blade has been conventionally cleaned over the years but offers the prospect of a very fine blade with a good polishing.
