    I have the chance to buy this wakizashi for my son. It's maker is said to be Echizen Kaneshige 1596-1624.i do not know if the blade is that old, that is why I need help with the tang translation. The sword is in part military and family mount. It may be a old blade due to been a vet pick up it having the combat cover and not being a Katana.

    Hello Marty,
    I like this example and I don't really see anything other than the weather cover that would indicate military use.
    In many ways, it is quite similar to the last one I picked up.

    Love the pierced tsuba and it appears to have a nice temper line!
    I think this would be a very nice start to your son's Japanese sword collection.

    Ralph thanks for the postive comment. Collin earned his black belt this year and I am looking for an old Katana but this one came along and I think he would be happy with it.

    He may have really earned it tonight, he broke his nose sparing. It is all his fault, he sould have kept his hands up.

    Hey Marty,
    That is a very nice looking traditional made sword. I can't help with the translation . I am a student in learning. But the nakago looks to have that age for that smith. The kissaki is clean and has a crisp defining line. Like Ralph had already mentioned. That pierced tsuba just adds to the elegant workmanship you want to see!
    Your a Good Dad!!!! There will need to be the appropriate gifting ceremony

    It may be the pictures but the blade looks longer than a wakizashi . How long is it?

    Semper Fi
