This Wakizashi catches your eyes with the very nice and artfull mounts at first. All ornaments are valuable and coherent, though I think it would get a Hozon of NBTHK if I bring it before the NBTHK. The blade itself comes with a Hozon of NTHK ( Nihon Token Hozon Kai) and impressed with its gunome midare Hamon. This Wakizashi is semai, the signature is: Kozuke no suke Minamoto no Yoshitoki. This Yoshitoki Wakizashi was forged around Kanbun- jidai ( 1663-1671).
