28 inch Shinto Katana (mumei)

Recommended Posts

Katana- great for study or for use in iado or other martial art.

Shinto, my best guess is early Shinto.  Ubu, mumei, 1 hole in nakago. The blade is in need of a polish but hamon and hada is visible.  Hamon is gunome with lots of sunagashi. 

One significant chip and several tiny knicks (pictured).  No visible openings but lots of small scratches and some staining.

Measures 91 cm total length and 71.7 cm nagasa, 3.1 cm wide and .9 cm thick.  2.8cm sori

Includes original saya and silver foiled habaki as well as newly made handle core and tsukaito that should be suited to reuse in re-wrapping the handle if you so choose.  I purchased it for iaido but am swapping it out for another blade.   

$1650 plus shipping and fees
