The 26 inch nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is in very good condition, no nicks, very buffed, firm in the hilt. All the fittings are in very good shape / condition. Saya / scabbard in good condition, some wear. The sword sheathes and draws well. No seki or other stamps, but we are sure this is showato (not gendaito).

A very good war time example. Just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference S23 (0606). Further / full sized images available upon request.
