Nambokucho Naginatanaoshi Wakizashi

KK0527

 

From a mid-20th century collection,  never submitted to shinsa, a naginatanaoshi wakizashi in shirasaya that has never been to shinsaa.  O-surage, kirijiri, narrow bohi running about one third of the blade on the shinogi.  Hawatare: ERROR the lemgth is approximately 20" plus a little.   Motohaba: 3.2 cm.  Kasane: in shinogi ji:  3.7 mm.  At the shinogi:  6.55 mm.  Chu suguba ko-midare large gunome notare in nie deki.  Sunagashi, kinsuji, nado.  The jigane is mokume nagare, jinie, chikei, nado.  The boshi is yakizumi. Unimportant, but need mentioning: two small carbon inclusions, and one area of loose grain, as shown below.  Mounted in shirasaya with a gold wash copper habaki with nekogaki.  A good candidate for Tokubetsu Hozon, Juyo would seem unlikely in these  times.                          $3,250
