I have owned this sword for over a decade.

 

An unsigned Tanto blade that looks old Koto to me in contemporary  Aikuchi Koshirae. The blade is in full Japanese polish and its Koshirae  was made carefully featuring polished Buffalo Horn mounts along with a  Saya with polished abalone / ray skin inserts. Both modest and flashy.

The blade has a very nice blueish look to it with very rough Hada and narrow Suguha Hamon. There is one Kizu (Ware within the Hamon) that I have highlighted.


I think this is am interesting candidate for Shinsa.
