An excellent wakizashi and rare classic masterpiece of the Osaka Shinto sword making tradition by the noted sword smith "Mutsu no kami Tachibana Tameyasu." This sword is for the serious collector of traditionally made samurai swords known as Nihonto. This short sword has an amazingly beautiful and elegant midare - toranba hamon ( meaning large rolling waves) tempering pattern. It also possesses hataraki activity in the hamon and the jigane and jihada surface steel patterns are of Masame and Itame wood grain patterns . This sword smith group moved from Osaka from kisyu and were employed by the Tokugawa regime . Made during the Genroku( EDO) period . The solid silver habaki in the "Koshi Yujo" patten compliments this wonderful wakizashi and classic example and masterpiece of the Osaka Shinto tradition of sword making . Approximately 49.5 cm hatawari length and 1.2 cm sori curvature with one mekugi ana mounting hole with the meibun signature being inscribed " Mutsu no kami Tachibana Tameyasu". This wakizashi also has the provenance and contestation papers of Tokubetsu Kicho Honzon ( designated "especially precious and worthy of preservation" ) Blue/ Green paper see the photos attached as certified by the main governing sword preservation society in Japan known as the NBTHK. I am willing to complete the export paperwork and would mail out by bonded and insured Japan EMS International Post , or I could assist and guide you in doing so for yourself depending on if and when you might to plan to PCS. I have done this several times before to the US and would be happy to put you in touch with several customers that I have done this for previously. Please contact me if you want to view or acquire this blade and it is available for viewing or delivery to Kadena, Foster, Courtney, and other areas upon request. Cheers , John
