    A rare bird here... it’s a waki with a 20” blade and 14” handle making it PERFECTLY balanced. Most of his Wakizashi swords will have a much shorter handle.

    If you don’t know about Criswell swords don’t feel bad.. either did I until about a month ago.

    There is a tiny nic in the blade half way down, from where the original owner used it to spar with another sword... (he bought as a tool, not a safe queen), and other than a few scratches it’s in great shape.

    Asking $800 or trade for?****Traded****

    Last pic is one I found online of a typical Criswell 20” Waki... note the shorter handle.

    Wow, those blades are a joy.

    I watch "Blade Smiths" cuz, I too love fine blades.

    Most of the guys on the show are immensely talented.
