A fully mounted wakizashi in a striated, black- lacquered saya with white ito wrapped tsuka, the gold menuki formed as shishi. The saya includes a kozuka knife, the gilt handle carved with leaves and a cicada. The blade is unsigned and dates from the Nanbokucho Period (14th Century), Japan. The blade and fittings are in good condition, commensurate with age and wear.
