This is an unsigned (mumei) gendaito bare blade with no stamps, suggesting pre-1940's traditional manufacture.  Gunto proportions with sanbonsugi hamon, ko-itame hada, and yasurimei consistent with a Seki school blade.

 

The blade bears a strong resemblance to this one:

The blade was rescued from a bad buff job and was recently polished.
 

Measurements are:

Nagasa: 65.5 cm
Nakago: 220 mm
Motohaba: 32mm
Sakihaba: 20 mm
Motokasane: 7 mm

Sakikasane: 4 mm

 

Photos should still be viewable here: http://s119.photobuc...o?sort=3&page=1

 

Or PM for additional photos.

 

Asking price is $900 plus shipping and PayPal fees.
