Here's a question. 

 

I've noticed some nanbokucho swords or later, which have Tokubetsu Hozon papers and sword polished, but without shirasaya ??? Instead their in koshiare. Why would a freshly polished sword not be given shirasaya?

Suspect there is a shirasaya, it's just not being shown/displayed.

I don't think that is the case, but I personally know a situation where Shirasaya (wood) was used to make Koshirae.
