Sword Mount 12

Blade: katana "Kanzo"

blade length 70.1cm, curvature 1.9cm, thickness at the base 7mm, width 3.2cm

Katana style mount with yasume-saya and throat cap
This is a normal katana mount, but adding a plain wood scabbard to rest the blade and throat cap.

Usually the blade is rested in yasume-saya, and the koshirae scabbard is capped to protect dust.

This system is older than the shirasaya system to preserve blade.
