Japanese early Wakisashi (unsigned tang) interesting tsuba.
Not sure if tsuba (hand guard) was designed this way or if
someone customized and hammered in the edges on a round tsuba to form
the turned up straight edge version. No saya (scabbard).
The habaki (blade collar) is a nice two piece verision with good basic
design. The fittings include a basic fuchi/kashira and a nice
matched pair of menuki with gold details. Blade is very
and dull, you can barely make out the temper line and small edge
chipping, overall, a decent blade...........$795.
