Shin-Shinto Tanto (fss-808)
This is a shin shinto tanto in mounts. The overall condition is good. This blade is more than likely from the 1800’s and the work on it is clearly visible. The hamon is in gunome style and looks attractive. The hada is itame and clear. These tanto were functional and the mounts are a mixture of brass and copper often called castle mounts. Overall a good reasonably priced tanto for a new collector that is in very good shape. The fittings are all matching, there are kodzuka and kogai, and the blue tsuka-ito string wrap is slightly frayed at one area. The sageo is a very nice fancy blue and white combination and the saya is finished in black lacquer with some raised floral design. The habaki and seppa are of copper.
