Authentic C.mid-1600's Japanese Samurai Sword Katana Nbthk 37+ Inches Very Good For Sale
Relisted item. Please be ready to pay at sale end. Thank You :) Hello & Welcome to my sale. Here I have an early Edo-Period full-length Katana 37.5 inches. This fantastic quality hand-forged Japanese Samurai Sword, forged in the early to mid 1600's, and signed ''Tadayoshi'' of the Hizen Province, determined 'gimei' by shinsa in Japan last summer. The blade is of exceptionally good quality, will accept a professional polish, and has no major flaws anywhere. Both sides in excellent, similar condition.
Please inspect the numerous color photographs included in this listing to assist you in this items' description. I have paperwork from the NBTHK Japan, a well-fitted Saya (custom-made bamboo case w/bamboo pin to hold the Nakago)), a Habaki (brass collar), a Sageo (silk scabbard), and a silk Sword Sheath included in this sale..
At a full-length of 37.5 inches, this is a full-length Katana - a true, hand-forged Japanese Sword created c.400 years ago in feudal Japan.
I do not know what that stamped symbol means at the Hamachi in the above photo. The signature is strong & clear..
The blade is sharp, and shows a good, slightly wavering Hamon along its edge. I received the information on this sword from a Professional Japanese Swords Shop in Honolulu, Hawaii. They informed me that the blade is a quite good one, in very good, still polishable condition and was signed - likely c.400 years ago - by other than its creator. Recently back from the NBTHK in Japan, and with a certification that the signature is gimei. It was not apparently signed by the original sword-smith - this sword could have been signed by a 'Tadayoshi' student of that time, or by a long-dead Japanese salesman trying to get top-dollar for his wares.You will enjoy applying further research to this excellent blade and please study my photographs now to apply your own expertise to my bit of knowledge. I welcome input about this very old and authentic Japanese Samurai Sword, and strongly suggest that you cross-reference the photographs in this listing against what data - or data bases - you have at your disposal. I am certain that this old blade will satisfy you as an important part of your collection..
