Sure is a unique example. One would think if it's ordered, created and tested in that order the could've planned the tang. I suppose it's the same thing with mekugi ana. Practicality first.


The koshirae though doesn't really complement the sword (in my opinion), but again, surely unusual. Anyone who can tell / inform me on the tsuba? 

The habaki might be worth adding in 'the habaki' topic, imposing little piece. Gold over copper with silver waves? 




I'm not familiar with the following terms for habaki or otherwise. Does it indicate inside/outside, as in a 2 construction habaki?


Uwagai: Silver wave carving,

Shitagai: Copper with details in gold unusual shape
