S15 Superb papered Samurai Tanto rare koshirae Baleen binding

























ITEM # swd-15

This is a very nice tanto,a very nice feature of this piece is the full polished kogatana blade with horimono ,signed by the Smith- Fujiwara Muneyuki & the obverse has a war slogan on the other side.
Forging pattern is Koitame with Hososuguha hamon and as this is old full polish the hada is not real clear .This smith I think is a Bungo smith working during middle of Edo,The papers are not the usual NBTHK or NTHK. I haven't seen these papers before & they may be from one of the smaller sword societies. this sword owes me 9k so i am listing it at a huge loss.
Price-$6800 Aud (this actually owes me 9k)
