Mumei Wakizashi

SS0514

Right out of the woodwork, an ubu mumei wakizashi.  Shinogizukure, iroi mune, chu kissaki.  The sugata would point toward Kambun (1661-16873).   Hawatare:  1 shaku 1 sun 6 bu 3 rin (50.4 cm /19.84").  Motohaba: 3.08 cm.  Sakihaba:  2.22 cm.  Kasane:  7.96 mm.  Suguba with bright and deep habuchi.  An area of koichigaiba, nijuba on one side toward the point.  The hada is a dead straight tight masame.  Mounted in old shirasaya with a waited silver foil habaki decorated with kiku and sakura.  Although a good fit, there is a significant gap between the habaki and the tsuka.  If this habaki is a replacement, I have to wonder the quality of the other.                         $750
