Sue Koto Mino Project Wakizashi



I generally try to avoid buying this sort of thing, let alone posting it.  However, friends settling an estate tugged at my heart strings and opened my wallet. 

A very healthy and stout  ubu mumei sue koto Mino wakizashi.  Shinogizukure, iroi mune, chu kissaki, sakizori. Hawatare: 1. shaku 5 sun 3 bu (45.56 cm /17.9375").  Motohaba:  2.529 cm.  Sakihaba:  1.7976 cm,  Kasane:   7  mm.  The hamon is an even gunome notare with a thin habuchui.  The jigane is obscured, but itame would be a good guess. 

The tsuba is missing, as is the fuchi.,  The kashira is a very good iron Higo mountain road pattern.  I am reasonably sure that matching iron fuchi can be found for small money.  Descent shakudo menuki with gold highlights.  Two piece gilt habaki.

This is a project blade.  Something for a martial artis who would want to fit a tsuba and fuchi,  the amature polisher, or someone looking for parts.
