For the serious colllector or sword enthusiast of genuinely made samurai swords known as “Nihonto “ look no further. This short sword known as a wakizashi is a rare and classic masterpiece of the Osaka Shinto sword making tradition by the noted sword smith "Mutsu no kami Tachibana Tameyasu." This blade has an amazingly beautiful and elegant midare - toranba hamon ( meaning large rolling waves) tempering pattern. It also possesses hataraki activity in the hamon and the jigane and jihada surface steel patterns are of Masame and Itame wood grain patterns .
