A good and unusual Japanese sword cane.
This example of a Japanese sword cane measures 90.5cms long overall.
Drawn from its sheath it is 59.5cms long with a blade length of 43.5cms.
The cane is timber carved to represent bamboo. The sheath is made by the split wood method, being two halves section out and resealed.
The blade is secured within the hilt by a copper mekugi pin.
The blade is very well made and shows unusual asymmetrical fullers sealed in red lacquer.
The blade is sharp and retains a full tip and although not seen in the photographs supplied, it does have a very clear Harmon despite being out of polish.
A good collectable sword cane with a rare Japanese blade.
