Good condition - 40,5 cm Nagasa

Old Koto period Japanese wakizashi in shirasaya and silver covered habaki.
The Hira Zukuri shaped blade is well forged with suguha-gunome mixed pattern, the hada is very pleasing and finely made. The polish is sharp traditionaly done, one lose grain pattern is noticable but overall a very nice clean blade.

The tang is unaltered with very deep patination, it is also signed but fainted out due to its age, but still readable:

氏房

Mei reads: Ujifusa
This smith name was active in the 1500-1600 era, by the characteristic of the blade it is most likely to be made by Wakasa Ujifusa or his students, working in 1500-1550's.

cutting edge: 40.5 cm

To the best of our knowledge we have tried to verify the signature, the signature of the sword is not guaranteed as there are no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification paper) to go with the sword.

To be reasonably certain as to the maker of a specific sword, it is necessary to submit the sword for shinsa (judging) by one of the major Japanese sword study associations (NBTHK or NTHK). These organizations will judge the sword and issue appropriate papers (origami) attesting to the swords authenticity and/or historical importance.
