Old Japanese Samurai Sword -CHUJO SAKU Mitsumasa -Antique Katana Collection/thDetails
1 antique Japanese katana available. This old Japanese sword would make an important acquisition for any collection.
This Japanese katana has an exceptional hamon--this sword could be something really good. This sword is unsigned. The next shinsa in the U.S. isn't until April 2021. As a dealer, its hard to hold on to too many swords in your inventory that long. So this sword is offered for sale here. St. Croix Blades recommends the buyer shinsa this sword--either in the U.S., or in Japan with the NBTHK.
The blade measures 26 1/2" (67.3 cm) from the blade tip to the bottom of the notch in the habaki. The saya and tsuka wrap are new. If not offering in shirasaya, Japanese dealers have mounts/koshirae made when a sword is missing koshirae before they are offered for sale. The fuchi, kashira, saya drag, and habaki all have a matching motif.
This sword is in fine polish.
This sword has no nicks. The blade is in excellent polish with just a few areas of occasional surface finish changes from just the beginnings of past light oxidation. The mounts are in perfect condition.
The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.
