Shinto Jumio (fss-680)





Item description;
This is a fine quality wakazashi accompanied with NTHK papers attributing it to a Jumio wordsmith(mino provence) and also attesting to its quality. This sword is in a fresh polish that was done in 2010. The hamon is gunome and is extremely well done. The beauty of this blade starts in the shape and then is clearly expressed in the hamon and hade.  The hada is very rich and profoundly active. The fact that it is in a fresh polish really brings out all the fine details of this sword. This blade also has two horimono/carvings.  One is a bonji and the other is a little more interestingly done closer to the kissaki/point.  It looks to be billowing clouds and is difficult to understand whey it was done in this area and in this design.  More than likely it was done by the swords owner at the time.  The sword is also accompanied by papers from the NTHK attesting to the quality, age and smith. The mounts are also very interesting and of great quality. The fittings are all in soft metal and in good condition.  The fuchi/kashira are in dragon motif as are the menuki.  The original saya is in overall good condition and shows some dings ad wear as is to be expected. This beautiful sword from the 1700’s and is even more interesting when viewing in hand. A fine collectable sword in fresh polish.
