Sold, Thank you
A dragon sails along, feet tucked in, mouth open in a growl…the body forming the shape of a curved short sword. It is 47 cm (19 inches) long and in overall fine condition.
It is said that these wooden swords were produced from the mid to late Edo period, in lieu of swords for those not allowed to carry weapons (all but samurai)...
