Pre-owned

Rank B - an authentic antique-vintage samurai wakizashi produced, purchased, and shipped straight from Japan. This item comes with certification papers verifying it\s registration and authenticity. As these were halted in production after World War 2, the piece is likely produced in the early or pre-showa era. The blade shows speckling but the overall item is in amazing condition for it's age with a very sharp clean blade, strong handle, and weighted perfectly. The exterior wood of the piece is absolutely stunning compared to others of it's age. We have not opened up the blade to confirm tang fullness as it came with authenticity papers when acquired, indicating markings and size. Please see all pictures for full representation before purchasing.

    STRAIGHT FROM JAPAN - This is an authentic antique Japanese sword. We have not taken the item apart or changed it in anyway so you will be receiving exactly what you're seeing! This sword is a pre-World War II vintage production with papers confirming inscriptions and year of certification. PLEASE NOTE: These papers are often retained by the customs offices when finally shipped. They are registration papers for the ownership in Japan and therefore are forfeited when the item is sent to a new owner overseas. All swords of this style were stopped being produced post world war 2 meaning this one was likely produced during the early showa era, but it could have originated even prior to that. The blade retains a VERY sharp finish with authentic hamon visually indicating high quality production of the time. If you are looking for a real Japanese sword, you've come to the right place. Please see our other sales for hard to find and authentic vintage product. Don't forget let us know if you have any questions about pricing options or product info!
