I'm thinking this one was legit but would like to hear from the experts.
Thank you very much,

I had to rub my eyes to check if I was seeing the price right and that it was indeed over $9000 and not $900

So I’m guessing from the responses that this was also a “fake”.

Nice acid etch on the hamon to make it pop followed with some hazuya. That guy is a busy man.

With Showas items you really have to know your stuff, even then I'm never 100% certain anymore after seeing the komonjo Gimei. For 9k someone must've seen more than us.

Two guys were competing, none of them wanted to give up, and up went the auction. That simple. The luckier of the two is the one who didn't get the sword.
