Swords from this point in time are very rare (to understate), and very special and significant works.
The sword are polished many times during the centuries, so its more slim than others from edo, signal of this ancient past. Pay attention to menukis. Blade is in very good condition due to aging and centuries. Not hagire, and not fatal damage, of course. Please see the close-up pictures for amazing details. There are a small chip near habaki, difficult to see when the Blade is not nude.
All my swords are authentic nihontos, imported from japan during many years of collection.
Includes antique Koshirae with Rayskin saya, Shirasaya, Tsunagi blade, silk bag and vintage katate display.
