Wakizashi - Kanetsune - Shirasaya Koshirae - Suriage Nakago - Shinto


This is a Suriage wakizashi in good condition with Mino-den features. The gunome hamon, typical of Mino, is well reflected in the itame jitetsu with mokume mixed in. There is a flaw around the monouchi, but overall it is in good condition for its age. Kanetsune is a swordsmith name that has been passed down from generation to generation since the time of Koto. This sword is estimated to be from the Kanbun Shinto period.
