Has under gone a full restoration.

This little sword looked as though it had seen better days. Apearances can be deceiving, as it actually polished up quite well. There is still a few chips in the blade and the hamon is rather close to the edge.There are also one or two small openings. This picture shows it after its foundation polish, the kissaki had to be remade as it was very flat, carefull use of a slightly courser stone gives it some definition. The tang is signed Yukihiro, and I beleive could be genuine.The folding in this blade is very tight and does not show any grain pattern.I believe the value of this sword  justifies the cost of its polish.Please check out the owners site at-http://www.mcdonnell.co.uk/mike/wakizashi/wakizashi.html
