Description:

Measuring 49 1/2 inches overall (inclusive of hilt), with an impressive cutting edge of about 36 3/8 inches length, and a width of about 1 3/8 inches and a spine thickness of nearly 1/3 of an inch, making for an impressively sized blade. A strong, wavy hamon is present, with subtle grain patterns and a serrated copper habaki. Fitted in a plain hardwood shirasaya set.

Rating Definition:

The very fine blade shows light oxidization overall, along with some minor edge nicks and minor handling marks. The fittings are rough, with evidence of multiple forms of repair. The blade is currently stuck in the grip material.
