  1. Hi everyone. this just finished on yahoo and sold for 301,000¥. What intrigues me other than the price is that it has never been polished. Ok, the file marks are similar to that on the unpolished side of a kozuka, but both sides? Also the edge is dull as if never sharpened. Is there someone here who can read what the seller says about it please? Just a bit intrigued. Mark.
