Measuring 36 inches overall, with a 25 1/2 inch blade, showing a mostly straight hamon with jagged accents and fine grain set into a copper habaki, with a round blackened brass tsuba, nickel washed furniture, and a black painted saya. The tang has a single mekugi-ana, with faded paint markings on the right side and a Seki Arsenal stamp on the left over a six-symbol carved signature.

Rating Definition:

Very good. The very fine blade shows minor spotting with a few small areas of deeper pitting concentrated towards the tip and some dings on the spine, with an overall bright color and strong hamon. The furniture shows mild wear and staining, and the saya shows some touched up paint.
