This is a simply good wakizashi, probably from 16th or 17th century. We
can temporally attribute it to Takada school in Bungo province around the
border between the Shinto and Koto period.
Steel has a wood grain layer pattern.
Hamon is a Hitatsura pattern made of large particles.

it is very honest work. So it is interesting to see the hitatsura hamon
and its particles. It looks wild.
It is originally no signature.
Habaki is made of copper.
