Niji mei Norimitsu
Polished by Woddy Hall.
Saya by John T. In stone finish.
Tsuka with crain f/k wich have hozon paper.
Tadpole menuki, frog in the reeds tsuba, lined up the fuchi crain is about to feast on frog.
Remarkably good shape for being close to 600yer old. No chips or kizu, boshi in tact.
May be a pit are two but nothing distracting.
Was slated for shinsa that did not happen.
Price reflection do to lack of papers.
This restoration was the labor of love through some trials and tribulations with the tsuka in Japan being wrapped.
Time in money wont be recoped. Sorry im going to be very selective on who I approve to purchase.
If I haven't known you for years on the board you must have a reference from someone in the Nihonto community, trust me they must carry some weight.
to my mates across the pond i cant offer a refund policy. I hope you understand.
State side im offering a three day grace.
Must have back in hand same as i sent to be refunded minus shipping cost.
