Wakizashi originally no signature
blade length 48.8cm, thickness at the base 7mm, width 2.4cm
This is an old wakizashi without signature originally. It is difficult for us to settle the age, but probably from 13th century to 16th century. It is very worn, but some parts are still nice with good hamon and good steel. The hamon in kissaki is almost worn out.
Hamon is a straight pattern and ko-midare pattern made of small particles. It looks very old style in koto period.
Polishing is the classical style (sashikomi style).
Tang looks very old, and no signature.
