Collecting, buying and selling antique Japanese Swords such as Katana’s, Wakizashi’s and Tanto’s

Wakizashi

Dear customer.

On the following pages you will find Wakizashis which I have for sale. A Wakizashi 脇差 is a short sword: Generally a traditional sword with a curved blade between 30 cm and 60 cm. Note: The cutting edge of the sword determines the length of the blade. The Wakizashi is mainly made after 1600. If the Wakizashi belongs to a Dai-Sho set, then the Wakizashi and Katana have the same type of koshirae (拵え) and sword fittings Tosogu (刀装具). Only higher placed people like Samurai etc …. wear allowed to carry Dai-Sho sets.
