Default Re purposed Japanese Sword in Ethnic dress.

Hi all


I have the following coming to me in a few weeks.

looks to be a re purposed Japanese sword probably a Wakizashi

I think I see a Sepoa and a Habaki in the close up of the handle, what do you think? (labelled 1 and 2)

Blade looks to be warped and in terrible condition but it will be interesting to see in hand.

Do the cowrie shells on the handle tell us anything?

Regards,

Ken
