Great Antique japanese suriage katana mounted on a high quality original edo koshirae mounting and shirasaya. The katana has been shortened long time ago and probably lost the signature.
We are in front of a beautiful nihonto forged arround the first edo period. The katana is almost in perfect condition, with no rust, not hagire, not nicks and not fatal damage of course. Is one of a kind. Splendid profesional japanese polish. Please see the close-up pictures for amazing details.
Take a special apraisal to this very clear and suberb Hammon and perfect profesional polish on it. You can see perfectly the tamahagane steel, hada grains and forging patterns, the tamahagane waves are beautiful and perfect.
The original antique koshirae is a magnificent example of edo period work. The fuchi and Kashira are made with copper inlays. The inlays are made by hand with impresive reliefs and in very good condition. The stuba has a beautiful example of edo work too with proper age. A rare piece very hard to found in this condition
Blade is in very good condition due to aging. Not rust, not nicks, not hagire and not fatal damage, of course. Bag included.
All my swords are originals, imported from japan and Europe during many years of collection. There are registered in the cultural affairs japanese prefecture. I send a copy of the papers included, original must keeped in japan by law.
