A very attractive Japanese tanto measuring 45cms in length, a 27cm blade. The blade is in magnificent condition, the tang is unsigned, the hilt and cross guard all of carved wood with the pommel in the form of a fearsome animal. The scabbard is in lovely condition being hundreds of pieces of shell inlaid and then over-lacquered. Complete with its kodzuka (small knife). A highly attractive possibly early 19th century tanto.
