Good evening Gentlemen,

Hope all are well.
This is a great forum, just found the glossary's, fantastic!

I was wondering if you have time to tell me anything about this sword.

Is this enough information to Kantei?

Wakizashi 65.5cm total

52.5cm cutting edge
3cm wide at the bottom of the blade and 2cm wide at the tip.
2cm bend in the blade.
Clean tip, not bent or chipped.


I think it was made around 1800?
Not much polish left.
Looks like a straight hamon.
Might have had a mei at one time but the rust and corrosion is pretty bad now.
Lots more photos if needed.

Thank You,
Pavel

After talking with my Sensei, I feel bad about asking for this blade to be Kantei.
He won't even look at it, told me I shouldn't be either.
So I apologize for offending your eye, I am learning as fast as I can.
Can't buy anymore blades until I learn a lot more than I know now.
