    japanese shikomi-zue

    Sword Cane.
    Genuine Japanese Meiji period Shikomi-zue, with a purpose made wakizashi blade, with true hamon and signed blade, I cannot make out the signature.
    Blade with some rust spots and a few small nicks,
    saya lacquered to resemble bark, some peeling to handle.
    Overall a very solid feeling piece, these rarely come up for sale.

    A very special piece of Samurai history.

     
    It was during the Meiji period (1868-1912) the
    Hito-Rei edict of 1876 banning the carrying of
    that the Shikomi-zue was born.
     
    Total length 35 in / 89 cm
    Blade length 18.5 in / 47 cm.

    Yamabushi

    Yamabushi came about through a long time involvement in the martial arts, which brought about an interest in Japanese weaponry and antiques from the Samurai era up to edged weapons of the Japanese in the second world war. I now buy and sell items worldwide, the vast majority of them coming direct from Japan via trusted dealers I have traded with for some years. Stock varies and is constantly changing, though I do have a particular leaning towards hand weapons and tansu, I am always willing to try and source items for customers. I have provided quality pieces to museums, TV and theatre companies worldwide. I try to keep our price range affordable rather than high end arty, but these are often dictated by shipping costs, customs charges, etc. For your assurance I offer a no quibble returns policy should an item not be as expected, for further piece of mind I accept payment by Paypal, along with my preference of payment via bank transfer.
