Description

A few select items from the collection are moving out and looking for new homes, proceeds will be invested in materials for future projects and plans.

Unpapered as it has been in a family continuously until recently, appears to be quite an old mumei o-suriage blade with excellent suguha hamon, has some mild rust spots and a couple of legitimate battle nicks but is in reasonable older style polish. Mountings are probably Edo period (~1600-1800), silver habaki and seppa, lovely nunome-zogan tsuba, shakudo fuchi (wave) and menuki (bamboo), sakura bark style urushi saya, some damage to ito/kashira but blade is tightly/properly fit to mountings, sold as is.

Kozuka is missing but sugiura jouie fits nicely. Also pairs well with yakisugi antler kake (shown below, not included).
