A signed wakizashi " Sada" with Dragon and Ken (sword) and Buddhist religious symbol horimono carvings with the reverse side of the blade having a horimono carving of a " kansaku" representing the rope held by the Buddhist Deity Fyu Do Myo. In fair to good polish with a newly made shirasaya from Iwate Prefecture in Morioka, Japan due to the original one being damaged and unfixable. The length is 54.2 cm in length, 0.8 cm sori curvature, and two holes in the tang for mounting (mekugi ana) and a brass habaki. One translation of "Sada" is "faithful " like between spouses or meaning "fidelity." The hamon tempering pattern is strong and powerful suguha meaning a straight tempering pattern. It is from the Shin Shinto era.
This blade was registered in Osaka Prefecture on May 4, 1965. Please message me if you are interested in viewing this blade. Cheers, Hamaki.
