We added a shinsakuto tanto signed Echigo ju Sadaaki saku to the gallery.
The Sadaaki tanto is a solid shinsakuto with a nice sugata and a robust feel to it. It would make a great entry level piece for a beginning collector, or a nice addition to a collection of gendaito/shinsakuto blades. I bought the piece from Mr. Tsuruta at Aoi Art in 1999, and have enjoyed it for ten years. it is in pristine shirasay and gold wash habaki with the original Aoi Art paper which includes photograph and full oshigatal.
