The hada is amazing on this one! Great price for such a well aged sword! There are swords made 30 years ago that are in a worse state so considering this blade is what? 650 years old or more?

 

If I had the cash I would buy this in a heartbeat. The koshirae is just a bonus at this point!

Nicely matched mounts are worth a bit on there own so even more if a bargain.
