Item Description: I am pleased to offer this original hand-made Japanese army officers Samurai sword from World War 2. The blade represents the opportunity to own a historicShinto wakizashi, ca. 1600s, from the well-known Echizen Seki school. The blade and the mountings are in Very Good condition. The sword has a blade length of 14.75 inches (38 cm). It features arare shobu zukuri shape. The blade features a well-graineditame hada that mixes with a burl mokume hada. The hamon is a Soshu-style gunome midare with prevalent and deep nie. The hamon is present the length of the blade through the kissaki where it ends in amaru boshi. There are activities likeyubashiri and sunagashi in and along the hamon.
The tang is mumei, or unsigned, and ubu, or unshortened. Based on the length and shape, the sword looks to date to ca. 1600s. Based on the workmanship, the sword looks to have come from a Shinto school such asEchizen Seki school.
The blade comes in original Samurai mountings. They are in Very Good condition. The tsuka is silk cord wrapped. The wrapping is tight with little to no fraying. The tsuba is ironkatchushi style with two accompanying seppas. The saya (scabbard) is wood lacquered black with family mon designs on it. The saya is inVery Good condition, showing a few areas of missing finish notably along the edges, while retaining roughly85-90% original finish. The blade is in Very Good condition. There are some small micro nicks, some scattered small spots of rust and some scratches along its length. There do not appear to be any major flaws like hagire. Given the age and craftsmanship, I think this sword would be a superb addition for a collector of WW2 militaria or Japanese swords.
