S10 Quality Full polished Katana with MINT D guard koshirae













SWD10

This is the best D guard Russo war mounted katana that i have ever seen,
Signature : Mumei
Certificate/papers : None
SORI : {curvature} 1.8 cm
Width at hamachi :3.4 cm
Width at kissaki : 2.2 cm
Cutting edge :67.8 cm {26 3/4 in}
Hamon : O-Gunome Midare
Hadori polish always hides/distorts the original hamon,I have just described the Hadori polished hamon above.The hamon beneath the polish appears to be Choji Midare Komi.
The blade is 100% flawless,no damage or flaws of any kind. Blade is an impressive thick beefy blade from Shin Shinto period.
Koshirae ; The blade is mounted in its fittings & they are as close to mint as you will ever see,images don't show the true gilt finish etc.
I have owned a couple of nice examples of these over the years but none as good as this & I personally have never seen one as good anywhere in the world for sale.
$8900
