This is an antique Japanese Katana Tansu used to store swords, sword fittings and polishing equipment. It measures that 24 " tall, 48.25 " wide, 18 " deep. The rare four level design allows for the organization and voluminous storage of samurai weapons and parts. It was made entirely out of Paulownia (Kirinoki) wood and the iron fittings were hand made. The side handles slide up to allow a long bamboo pole through them allowing two persons to easily carry the chest from place to place.
