Mino Wakizashi in Koshirae Attributed to Kanemoto late 16th - NBTHK

Blade : Shinogi-zukuri and iori mune, the hamon is a finely pronounced gunome with a partial slight tendency towards sugi. The unsigned tang is ubu with one mekugi-ana, the tip is kurijiri, the yasurime is o-sujikai. The paper atribution gives this blade to a ‘successor’ of Kanemoto. There were very many swordsmiths in the Mino school with the name Kanemoto, most of them were active in the 16th century.
Mounting: Oval-round tsuba with two hitsu and openwork, motifs showing lotus leaves. The kashira in silver takazogan with some gilding shows a lively shishi, while the kashira shows a large blossom utilizing the same technique. Both menuki in black shakudo with some gold also show shishi.
The saya with lustrous black lacquer has an ishime structure.
Nagasa: 39.1 cm, total length: 61 cm
