Check out this nice Shizu Juyo blade with equally nice mounts:

Notice anything a bit disturbing?  

The tsuba has a through and through crack from nakago ana to mimi.  It wasn't even mentioned in the description.   Caveat emptor!

Still a very good blade at an attractive price. Frankly, on a blade like this, the en suite koshirae are simply a welcome bonus.

I'd sell the koshirae it's not attractive in my opinion

I didn't even notice it had koshirae as I was looking at a Yamato SHIZU blade.

I  liked both the blade and the koshirae - at least until I saw the busted tsuba!
