Hamon is gunome midare & togari gunomi mixed, with some nice ashi in the Ha. Small well grained itame hada with lots of activity.
The blade has no flaws what so ever,NO hagiri,open grain,kizu,or course hada,a beautiful flawless katana,
There is 3 holes in the tang {nakago} tang has not been shortened,I cant really fault the blade in any way ,its not a huge long sword but it is a katana length & the Koshirae are just stunning.

Koshirae :
This Superb Koshirae consists of the following
Tsuba-- Shakudo Squared shape with a single pierced design & kozuka slot on the opposite side.
Fuchi/kashira-- Outstanding detail done in gold & silver which depict flowers & a temple gate etc..
Menuki--Again exceptional quality gold silver & shakudo flowers,,matching to the fuchi kashira & pierced design on the tsuba.
Binding -- black silk excellent plus condition.
Same-- Quite dark & excellent condition.
Saya--Beautiful condition ,done in rough textured black & gold lacquer finished with black silk sageo.
The set is beautifully matched & in my opinion the sword as a complete unit is a knockout piece.
Any sword collector would be proud to own such a lovely piece.
The sword has a complete oshigata line drawing of the blade beautifully presented on a Japanese scroll.as well as a set of NBTHK papers for the blade,The fittings are not papered but they would most likely get papers easily.
A good investment that can be enjoyed every day for many many years.
