An antique that has been in the family for many years, the driftwood comes from Japan. This small sword rack is unique and has a very “wabisabi” look and feel. The antler bases have been brushed with a thin layer of pure natural urushi lacquer and the finish of the wood is natural. Height is about 13″, width 14″, and depth just under 6″. The stand is suitable for a medium to large tanto (~9-12″ blade) up to a small wakizashi (~16″ blade) and looks lovely with shirasaya as well.
Material: driftwood, antler sheds, Bamboo, natural urushi lacquer
This piece is in a private collection on Vancouver Island.
