The quality of the sword is also very good. The hamon is bright and has very good activity and would benefit from a fresh polish. The hada is sound and is forged well with much ji-nie and maybe utsuri can be seen. A fresh polish would uncover this The overall feel of this blade is one of a well balanced beautiful wakazashi . The hamon is frosted with nie and the hada is a well forged mokume with itame.
