Since I am tempted with another purchase I decided to put this back on the market.

 

I have owned this sword for many years and the common oppinion is Mihara school. No doubt about Koto periode. I dare to say that this is a quality sword with much to enjoy. Good Horimono. Nice Hada. There are long Chikei. The blade is in polish with some small nail catchers in the cutting edge which the last polisher choose to not remove as they are minor versus the metal removal needed.

 

The Koshirae consist of a Moko iron Tsuba, Soten style Fuchi / Kashira and Menuki and a black Urushi saya with some lacquer losses as expected with an old things. What is nice is the lacquered leathr Ito of the Tsuka.


Again please excuse my poor photography. I can gurantee that the blade looks better in person than on my lousy images.


USD 3900,- plus shipping.

 

Located in Europe so no custom fees.
