I always enjoy pulling blades out of storage for cleaning and appreciation, especially if I haven't really looked at them in a while... It is almost like being introduced to the swords anew. This is a perfect example, it has been a little over three months since the last time I looked at this tanto. 

I have had this piece for a little over 6 years.  About 2 years ago, a friend said that he saw a katana mounted with a nearly identical fuchi in Chicago... If anyone knows anything about that blade, let me know.  Otherwise, let me know what you think of this blade.

As for the specs, it's a late Edo period tanto mounted as a wakizashi; all original mounts and in full polish; abelone saya with matching fuchi/kashira/tsuba/menuki - lots of gold.
