I have enjoyed this tanto for a few years and will reluctantly let it go to a new home. It is mounted in aikuchi style mounts with a kozuka and kogai...all in black with black ito on the tsuka. The nakago is slightly suriage and mumei. I have had many evaluations by many knowledgable people as to the timeframe and school of this blade. Most lean towards Mino-den (Seki) but others say possibly Bizen-den (Echizen). To me, it is a beautiful blade regardless. Had it sold twice this past weekend to dealers at the Show of Shows, but neither had cash to pay with and wanted to pay by check.
