This is an exquisite katana that has beautiful activity and is well made.  It is from the shinto era around 1600’s and accompanied with NBTHK papers attributing it to a Jumyo swordsmith and also attesting to its quality.  The hamon is gunome midare and it has many hataraki.  The shape is elegant and well balanced.   The hada is very rich and profoundly active.  The mounts are also very interesting and attractive with original old fitting that are also dating back to the shinto era.  This beautiful sword is even more interesting when viewing in hand.  A fine collectable sword.
