Excellent Signed Japanese Sword with Scabbard Attributed to the Warring States Era

Lot 3454: Excellent Signed Japanese Sword with Scabbard Attributed to the Warring States Era

by Rock Island Auction Company

May 4, 2014, 9:00 AM ChST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: Excellent Signed Japanese Sword with Scabbard Attributed to the Warring States EraMeasuring 35 3/4 inches overall, the 25 inch blade shows a slightly wavy hamon with a brass habaki and an iron tsuba with copper seppa, with gold accented grass on top and bottom, and a raised engraved tiger on the underside. Darkened copper fuchi and kashira, with raised fold accented floral designs, blue cord wrap over white rayskin, and gilt copper praying mantis menuki. Saya is plain hardwood, with an iron and brass suspension band and a brown leather cover. Three mekugi-ana are present in the nakago, with the lowest 2 plugged, a 7-figure signature on the left side, and a 7-figure signature on the right. A consignor supplied translation indicates that the right signature is "soshu ju masatsugu", indicating a blade produced by Masatsugu (more than one smith by that name was active in the mid-1500s, when the Sengoku Period was well underway) in accordance with the Soshu school of blademaking, with the left signature being attributed to the unidentified smith who performed one of the shortening procedures. Based on the mekugi-ana positioning and suggested date of manufacture, this sword likely started life as a tachi, and was progressively shortened as styles and preferences among Japan's warfighters shifted from big swords wielded from horseback to shorter blades more suitable for rapid deployment and close-quarters work.Manufacturer: NoneModel: NoneBBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number:

Condition Report: Excellent. A small amount of spotting is visible on the blade, concentrated on the base of the spine near the habaki, minor polishing near the tip, and well defined metal grain and hamon. A few very tiny chips are visible near the end of the edge. The tsuba shows a well aged brown color, and the fuchi, kashira, and menuki are very good. The rayskin has shrunken slightly, with a small amount of visible wood at the top and bottom. The saya is fair, with scuffs and cracking on the leather.

Pair of Japanese Swords in Clan-Themed

Lot 3461: Pair of Japanese Swords in Clan-Themed "Daisho" Mounting with Signed Kogatana

by Rock Island Auction Company

May 4, 2014, 9:00 AM ChST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: Pair of Japanese Swords in Clan-Themed "Daisho" Mounting with Signed KogatanaOne of the most enduring symbols of the Japanese Samurai, the Daisho ("long-short") was a paired set of blades, traditionally worn with matching mountings. Though a few examples are known where both blades were produced as a set by a single smith, most samurai took blades from different smiths and outfitted them to match. The most typical combination was a katana (long enough to be of good use in open combat) with a wakizashi (a smaller weapon better suited for use in close quarters, such as inside buildings), while this set consists of two wakizashi-length blades. There are a number of possible reasons for this configuration, but since no information is available regarding the lineage of the blades, we can only speculate. Both blades are fitted with silver finished habaki, round iron tsuba with cut-through dragon themed designs, darkened flats, darkened copper fuchi and kashira with gold accented raised bird designs, blue cord wrap over white rayskin and silver accented horse themed menuki, and a maroon lacquer finished saya with blue and white cord wrap and a series of "maruni chigai takanoha" (crossed eagle feather) mon designs in raised gold lacquer. The crossed feathers are associated with a number of Japanese clans. Both blades are unsigned and are from the 19th century. 1) O-wakizashi sword, 33 inches overall with a 23 1/2 inch blade and a straight temper line, cloud themed copper accent plates on the habaki, and a shortened nakago with 2 mekugi-ana. 2) Wakizashi, 24 1/2 inches overall with a 17 1/2 inch blade, irregular hamon, plain silver accent paneled habaki, and a kogatana pocket on the saya (see 3). 3) Kogatana, 8 1/4 inches overall with a 4 1/2 inch blade and a gold accented copper handle with a raised dragon on the right side and a 2-line signature on the left.Manufacturer: NoneModel: NoneBBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number:

Condition Report: 1) Very fine. The blade shows excellent grain and a strong hamon, with a few chips in the edge, and some opening seams, chiefly visible on the left side on the lower third of the blade. Fittings are fair, with the left side accent panel on the habaki bending away, separation along the seam of the rayskin, and a dark patina on the tsuba. The seppa appear to be replacements from more than one donor weapon. The saya is very good, with some light scuffs and a few chips, cracks and signs of repair at the koiguchi. 2) Fine, with well defined grain, mild spotting, and a slightly faded hamon. The habaki and seppa show a number of dents and cracks, the rayskin is splitting, and the cord is fraying. The saya is very good, with a few light dents. 3) Good, with spotting on the blade and mild wear on the handle.

The spearman is repeated on the kashira, with a copper cord wrap over white rayskin and a pair of elaborate gold and darkened silver menuki, showing a group of men in a dragon-headed boat on the left and a group of birds flying over moonlit clouds on the right. The saya is black lacquer finished with brown flecking, with a copper cord through the kurigata and a pocket for a kogatana, 8 1/2 inches overall with a 4 5/8 inch blade signed faintly on the right with a gilt/darkened copper handle, showing a scene of a woman in a kimono standing under a tree branch. The top of the wood under the fuchi bears a 3-symbol ink signature, with a 4-symbol engraved signature on the left side of the tang. A consignor-supplied translation attributes this signature to Fujiwara Tadahiro, a swordsmith of Hizen Provence active circa 1632-1693.Manufacturer: NoneModel: NoneBBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number:

Condition Report: Good. The blade has been polished, with a fine grain and light spotting, mild staining on the wrap, splitting of the rayskin and mild handling marks overall. The mekugi is absent.
