Old Japanese sword (CHISA KATANA), age unknown.
I am releasing from my collection an old Japanese sword (chisa katana), not signed. This was probably a shortened katana blade, which was once shortened during that time, I can’t say how old the blade is, it could be the 14th or 19th century, however, experts will certainly know from what period the blade is from. All of this piece is in a 100% original condition. The handle still has the old wrap and old menukis, very elaborately worked kashira and fuchi, the fuchi still has the signature, narrow fullers on on both sides of the blade, still has the old polish, but could certainly do with another polish, very nice hamon that you can still recognise. The scabbard also has the original paint, the blade wobbles a little in the scabbard for whatever reason. Please see photos for further details. Total length: 76 cm, without scabbard: 71 cm, blade length: 52 cm, blade width: 2.7 cm. You are welcome to take a look at it any time at my place.
