Thank you for your feedback. I have been researching Chinese tunkou as that seems the type most similar, but it is tough going. Your comment gives another avenue of research. Thanks!

I like the finding stuff part better, the research angle I need staff!

The pics work when I use https, but not http. It looks like the URLs inserted for the pics are https, and most browsers probably won't load mixed-zone resources like that because of the potential security issues. Moral of the story: always use https everywhere.

Does anybody else not see any photos?
I switched to the Google Chrome browser and the pictures showed up.

ok...I can see the pictures now.

It's pretty toasted, but it looks like a wakizashi to me, although the Tsuka is a little short, but that could just be the perspective.

Waaay cool. Not many people in the US have found one.....CONGRATS!!!

You really need to figure out how to preserve it since the air has moisture and will rust it to pieces....

You dig a good job digging it out whole....I'm sure I would have destroyed it!!!
