Exquisite Katana (fss 844)

Exquisite Katana (fss 844)

Exquisite Katana (fss-844) New Item Available Sold On Hold Special Sale Here we have a beautiful sword that appears to be used for one-handed use. It looks more like it was made to be a kodachi. A bit shorter than the average katana, perhaps for a quick slashing sword. We feel that this length was made shorter intentionaly with the suriage.  The sword is exceptional and is very tightly forged.  The hada is crystal clear and looks very deep and dark.  The hamon is very interesting and unique.  It has a mixture of nie and some nioi adding to its quality.  It has a very faint signature that is not legible. The sword looks Mino school in style. The sword has not been submitted to shinsa yet so it would be interesting to find out what they would say about the sword. Mounts are fully restored and are in the same style as they originally came.  The saya is a satsuma red and a black tsukamaki.  The fittings are from the Edo era.  The saya is clean inside to preserve the polish for years to come.
