Anyone have any thoughts on if this Sandai Kunihide wakizashi mei is genuine? I believe the smith is KUN 113 in Hawleys.

I would also appreciate any information on the smith that anyone has.

Thanks.

Thanks for the link to the article. That is most helpful.

The mei on the wakizashi looks to be a close match but I would appreciate anyone else's thoughts.

It is very close Peter, you should send it to NTHK Gordon Robson for mei authentification

On opening the saya for cleaning the following inscription was found.

Looks like it says Bunsei 12th year, 6th month. (1829). Ties in quite nicely with the date of the sword, maybe it was the 2nd saya the owner had made?
