Katana - Mumei(No Signature) - Uchigatana Koshirae - Suriage Nakago - Shinto Era


This sword was originally made as a long Tachi, and it is believed that it was shortened over time to its current length. The blade is thick and heavy, featuring a very interesting and tasteful jitetsu with mokume mixed in with the itame. The Nie-style Midare hamon is very dignified and massive. The condition of preservation is good for its age, and despite the presence of minute flaws, the overall condition is clean. The fuchi-gashira, menuki, tsuba, and kojiri are original, and the fuchi-gashira and kojiri are a set. The tsuba is a sukashi-tsuba with an exquisite pattern. The scabbard has a few shallow dents and flaws from age, but it has enough value as an antique and is a recommended gem to be enjoyed as an object of appreciation.
