Other Info
This Wakizashi has passed the 18th Juyo Token Shinsa in 1969. The shape of this blade is Naginata-Naoshi style. It is Mumei but attributed to Unji of the Ukai Tradition from Bizen. He was active during the late Kamakura Period and was the Representative of the swordsmiths among the Ukai Tradition as well as the other swordsmith, Unsho. Both Unji and Unsho were invited to Kyoto to forge for the Emperor Godaigo. Because of this, the features of their work resemble the Yamashiro Tradition. This Wakizashi has the features of Unji and is a good condition.
