The blade which has a cutting edge of 21 _', was assessed by a UK based Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg. His assessment accompanies this piece. In the assessment he details how the Tamba No Kami Yohi Michi Family Of Sword Smiths worked for 3 generations between 1644-1704. The family were allowed to stamp the tangs of their blades with the Imperial Chrysanthemum mon. The family were divided into 2 branches, the other being the Osaka Tanba line.   The Osaka -Tanba were not allowed to mark their blades with the Imperial mon. The family was from the Mishina school and moved to Kyoto in 1593. In the description he states ïI think this (blade) is Osaka-Tanba' and describes the blade as having a subdued Sudareba (Bamboo curtain) hamon. His description also includes an image and translation of the tang signature which is without mon. To protect the blade it is fitted with a Japanese Maple wood hilt and scabbard in superb condition.   The piece comes with its cloth cover with draw cord.   The sale of this ancient piece with expert assessment includes UK delivery.Read more
