Shinto Wakazashi (fss-764)

A wakazashi from the edo period that is in need of restoration with a beautiful set of mounts.
This longish-zukiri  blade is ready for restoration and appears to have a gunome-midare-ish hamon.

The tang is longish and with two holes.
There appears to be the remnants of kanji at the bottom of one side of the blade. ji-nie can be found.

The koshirae has a floral fuchi and a Buddhist type of creature for a kashira. The Tsuba is an iron  style carved with floral motif,. . The menuki are of mice eating what appears to be cheese . The saya is finshed in a black spiral gloss lacquer. The Tsuka-ito is gold. All in all a great package for RESTORATION. There is no kodzuka and a horn piece below it is missing. There is a gold washed habaki also.
