Signed antique wakizashi in shirasaya - Yoshimichi
We are looking for a new owner for this very cute wakizashi most likely from mid Edo era (around 300 years old). It has a newly shirasaya and new white brass habaki.
An excellent starter sword for the beginning collector.
It has some rust of old age but it still shows many lovely details.
The blade has enough steel to be polished a final time and it will make an excellent practice blade for serious beginning sword polishers.
Clear signature on nakago with: 吉道
ps. one of the horn pieces around the bamboo pegs fell out before photography. Of course this will be fixed this upon purchasing the shirasaya.
