About this sword :   This is a wakizashi by Dewa no Kami Yukihiro. This is the shodai Hizen Yukihiro. He was the grandson of the shodai Tadayoshi and the younger brother of shodai Masahiro. He received the title of Dewa no Daijo in 1648 and this was upgraded to Dewa no Kami in 1663. He passed away in 1683. So this blade was made in the 20 year period between 1663 and 1683.

This blade is in full polish. There are small ware and coarse hada as shown in the photos.

This blade comes with a Hozon Paper from the NBTHK. The paper specifies that this is a work by the shodai in parenthesis below the recording of the mei. It has an old silver wash copper habaki, a shirasaya and a storage bag. The mekugi needs to be trimmed and there are some dings in the shira-saya. An ubu and zaimei work by one of the most famous Hizen shinto smiths.
