Recently picked up this battle used sword .
The blade is made by Yushu Hojo Ju Hiromasa Saku.
The blade is in very good condition …
the only problem being is it still as the remnants of the thick arsenal grease on it .
when removing the Habaki on both sides of the blade are markings ?
The Tsuka shows evidence of a removal of a Mon.
The Saya again shows evidence of combat use which looks like bullet damage to the edge of the saya .
Regarding the grease does anyone know how to remove it ,
Any help would be greatly appreciated .
Many thanks Gareth
