Very good condition, see description

Wakizashi - Signed 'Kanesada' And NBTHK Hozon Papers For Blade And Koshirae - Japan - 17th century (Early Edo period)

The sword was made in 1661-1673 "Oshu ju Kanesada", school : Aizu Kanesada (5th gen), Chu jo saku (Superior medium made, above average)

For this age the sword is still in a very good condition.
The 'saya' is very beautifull, it shines and has very nice artwork when you look close to it. This is done and finished with quality

The 'tsuka' is in a good condition and the 'ito' gives a very strong grip when holding it.

The 'Hamon' is very active, it is well seen all the way to the point

The 'habaki' ( blade collar) is missing the second part, this is one minor thing what makes the 'tsuba' (crossguard) a little loose, also when you put the blade into the 'saya'. Not bad but i have to mention it

Also the Wakizashi comes with two NBTHK hozon papers.
These two papers are certificates, one for the blade and one for the koshirae.
These papers are original and are stamp signed.

Blade length: 52cm
Carve: 1.5cm
Motohaba: 2.7cm
Motokasane: 0.6cm
Sakihaba: 2cm
Sakikasane: 0.5cm
Koshirae lenth: 74cm
Saya length: 56cm
Period: Edo period

All original, please look at the photos.

**Comes without the stand**

Beware of the law in your country. You buy what you see, there are a lot of pictures and read the discription well . This is not a toy.
This is a auction, no return.
