Shirasaya O Tanto by John Lee

As Shirasaya refers to a special sword mount, which was formerly used for the gentle keeping the blade. Especially in times of peace, the blades were kept in it perfectly protected. The unpainted Magnolia wood absorbs the moisture inside the sheath, leading them to the outside and thus protects the blade from rust. Many Shirasaya were provided with a "Sayagaki", an inscription, which gave information on Smith, Origin and classification. On the streets of Japan, the inconspicuous outfit was no handle and guard, especially in the late 19th Century use. At the time of the emperor performing Samurai swords banned. The Shirasaya mount, which saw a wooden sword and wooden stick was very similar, a clever way to wear the sword still unnoticed. More information...
