Great Antique Wakizashi signed KANEHISA 兼久 in Shirasaya.
Very clear and beautiful Hammon and perfect and recent profesional polish on it. You can see perfectly the tamahagane steel, hada grains and forging patterns, the tamahagane waves are beautiful and perfect. Probably a special order, take a look at the big blade, very uncommon on Wakisashis, very colectable for investment too.
