Description
 
Swords in Japan often had tools attached in a side pocket of the saya.  This kozuka blade is a modern example.  Hand forged by Kawahara Sadachika in Shiga, Japan.  Kozuka blades were used as general tool knives in sorts of situations.  This blade was hand forged and polished in exactly the same way Kawahara Sensei forges traditional katana.  It is an excellent example of his traditional craftsmanship.

Approximately 20.5 cm total length.
