Great Antique Wakisashi signed "Fujiwara Shizunaga saku" in Koshirae.
Very beautiful Suguha hammon. You can see the tamahagane steel, hada grains, nioi and nie and forging patterns, the tamahagane waves are beautiful. Take a look to the beautiful and very rare kanmuri-otoshi-zukuri blade.
kanmuri-otoshi-zukuri (冠落造): At this tsukurikomi, the blade starts at the base in shinogi-zukuri but then, usually rather early, the shinogi-ji gets a shôbu-zukuri-style slant which continues up to the tip. This interpretation was popular among Yamato smiths and appears in the early Kamakura period. It was later again revived by some shintô smiths.
Blade is in very good condition. Not hagire and not fatal damage, of course. Please see the close-up pictures for amazing details.
All my swords are originals, imported from japan during many years of collection. Hand forged samurai blades are registered in the Agency for Cultural Affairs as artwork and The Board of Education (Cultural properties protection Committee); therefore each sword has the registration card, issued by the Board of Education.
I send a copy papers included. Bag included.
