My late grandfather left behind this rusty sword that no one in the family knew about. He lived in Georgia (the U.S. state, not the country). We're not sure where he may have acquired the sword, or how long he may have had it.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, name please,

Resist all urges to remove the rust from this sword; it can be restored but only by a properly trained polisher.  Unless you plan to collect Japanese swords, you should think about selling it to someone who will see that it gets the care it deserves (which will be expensive).  If you have questions and would like to talk, I'm in the central time zone and wouldn't mind a call.

Best,  Grey  218-726-0395
