Unsigned Shinshinto Japanese Tanto, sold
In good overall condition, an unsigned Shinshinto era Japanese
Tanto in quite high polish.
Bohi blade, complete with silk bag. Excellent hamon and hada.
The 8 3/8 inch Nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is in very good
condition with a pronounced hamon and fine hada. The furniture is
high quality and good but the tsuba (guard) does move up and down
if pushed. The saya / scabbard / sheath is damaged in several places.
The silk bag is in good condition.
Lovely blade, truly, with quality furniture, albeit the saya needs
attention / replacing. A great buy for just £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference number W96 (1225). Further
/ full sized pictures available upon request.
