Fine 19th C. Japanese Katana Sword
|( ID: js966 )|
A fine 19th C. Japanese katana sword, with matching mounts of chiseled and deeply patinated brass of feathered form with roosters as the menuki. The blade is in nice condition with a visible hamon, and one very small chip in the cutting edge, and displays the proportions of an earlier blade, but we date this conservatively to the 19th c.
Overall length is 37", blade has a 25" cutting edge.
