Hi all,

 

I purchased this Koshirae recently and although it doesn't have the classic Nishigaki waves F/K, it is classic Higo with the Black Same, leather ito and rounded shibuichi kogiri.. This koshirae has that subdued and elegant 'tea taste' style about it that I really like.

The saya has provision for a Kozuka so although it is 102 cm Katana Koshirae, it think it may have more likely been a Bashin perhaps..? Any thoughts on this?
