This is a very rare, antique Japanese sword Wakizashi It was made around the year 1500 A.D. (1450-1550 A.D.) and can be attributed to the Mino Province the wide shinogi indicates the Yamato School sword smith . The sword is with the original matching mounts in its original, wooden, red lacquered (saya) scabbard in the form of a lobster tail (Ebi-Zaya) and fitted with stunning all matching and original its mounts. An outstanding, slightly curved blade with carving (horimono) has a nice wave full temper Hammon which extends into the Boshi (point area). Blade tang with one (mekugi-ana) is unsigned and has dark brown rust patina. Condition: the blade is in unpolished condition and in my opinion is in very good shape considering its age; this blade has no major flaws of any kind; no bends, nicks, wear cracks, etc. The scabbard and the wooden handle have some damage although I don't want to mess up with the sword and I would rather leave repairs to the experts. Total length with the scabbard is: 21 ¾ inches (52.7cm), the total length of the blade including the tang is 19 5/8 inches (49.8cm). Width of the blade near the tang is 1 ¼ inches (3 cm).Cutting length of the blade: 14 7/8 inches (37.8cm). Judging from my long experience in selling antiques that this is a very rare sword .Purchase with confidence this is an authentic Japanese sword Wakizashi not a reproduction like many of them on the marked.
