Item #: BQ1509b -- A Scarce Signed Japanese Four-sided Yanoni Point, Edo-period, ca. 1700 -- $340.00
Six character signature; very tiny kanji that are difficult to read but in part seems to be Kaniuji, possibly from Mino province. Considerable surface rust but no kizu evident. Hamon not currently visible, but this type are usually suguha. Looks like it will polish well. It is rare to fine a point of this size with a long signature. 20.8 cm. overall.
