    Jumyo Wakizashi Daisho

    Hello Gents,

    I'm offering my Jumyo Daisho for sale.

    I'm unable to load photos to the forum for some reason. Here is a link to some photos of the Daisho.

    http://www.militaria.co.za/nmb/topic...izashi-daisho/



    Jumyo comes from a long line of sword smiths based in Mino province working in the Mino Tradition. 1st Generation Jumyo is said to originate from Yamato province, dating back to Einin (1293-1299). Swords from this smith are said to bring good luck and were commonly used as gifts.

    The workmanship in this daisho looks to be Sue-Koto or early Shinto period work (1550-1650 AD). Irregular Midare, bold Mokume hada in areas. The Boshi is the real stand out. Both swords are ubu and signed "Jumyo".

    Nagasa: Daito 59.2cm
    Shoto 42.8cm

    Both of these swords are of wakizashi length. The daito being just 0.8 cm under katana length. This is a true daisho, not a mixed matched pair of swords. The workmanship and signatures on each sword are the same. They are both stored in high quality shira-saya with horn koiguchi and solid silver two piece habaki.

    Both swords are in an older state of polish and the shoto has some old oil stains. The daito has also had a small repair on the mune at some point.

    These swords would benefit greatly from a professional Japanese polish (sashi-komi would be best), new koshirae and papers if one so desired. That was my plan anyway, and still may be. I'm only posting this for sale ad for a few days due to some recent financial strain. If they don't sell in a few days I'm going to take this ad down and gladly keep them.

    I'm based in Canada. Depending on your location, I can work with the buyer a bit in regards to the shipping cost.

    A great opportunity to own a true daisho for a fair price. $3,500 USD.

    Best way to reach me is by email. Thank you.
