I would like to discuss en hear some opinion about this Katana
I have some knowledge about the WW2 Military katana but this is a other league
Blade is 34,25... inch from tip of the blade till the end of the tang probaly signed by Nankei Shigekuni
There are traces of lacquer/varnish on the blade.
Maybe they replaced parts like the Tsuka in the past but all fits tightly and matching the Kashira and Fuchi.
Does anybody recognise the Menuki or could give a date/era about the parts
Is it worthy to restore the Katana
