A wakazashi with silver mounts, its Shinshinto blade with horimono encased in an elaborate wood saya realistically modeled as a dragon. The exceptional carving accentuates the special rich, dark patina of the wood and the personality of this fanciful creature: his gold and amber eyes, slightly-opened mouth, each individual scale, flame and curling tail. This mythical creature is brought to life and is in very good condition. Length: 23.5” 19th Century, Japan
