Description: This mumei piece is estimated to be early shinto from the Kanbun period (1661-1673).

The saya is new made with burgundy red lacquer.  The tsuka is older possibly early 1900’s and the tusba is a modern reproduction of an early piece.  Shakudo over copper habaki.

The blade is slight koshizori with ko-kissaki and iroi mune.  Itame/mokume hada with very slight gunome based on suguha hamon.  Boshi is komaru.

Nakago appears to be ubu, with kiri yasurime and slight kurijiri.

 

Asking Price: $10,000
