Hello all,
I wonder if I could ask a little help, this wakizashi came to me with a satsuma wrap tsuka with no tsuba.
It is in a sorry state with bends, my question is on what can be seen what is the style, shape, name of this piece as I can only find similar , (shobu-zukuri, ) but the shinogi runs of the mune with no sign of yokote, it is a narrow blade with a very narrow, thin mune,
Many thanks
Peter

Shobu zukuri is the name, there is no Yokote in this Keijo. Seems suriage to my eyes.

Peter -
very interesting treatment of the nakago-jiri if suriage, i note the presence of a koshi-hi. since the hi runs into the nakago this could be an indicator for suriage as Jean points out. the nakago also appears to have no yasuri mei or at least they are very light,

what are you seeing in terms of hamon, does it run into the nakago or stop at the machi?

Satsuma was notorious for recycling things for use with little regard for the aesthetics of Edo. does the handle fit with room for a tsuba? or does it sit flush with the habaki?

interesting little piece, would love to see more photos,
-t
