Ubu, 1 mekugi-ana.  Fine and tight ko itame hada.  The hamon is regular, gunome of round choji, nioi guchi covered in fine ko-nie.  In places the heads of the gunome/choji are connected with sunagashi/kinsuji.  The boshi is midare ending in chu-maru with a short kaeri.  The blade is in polish and, other than for a couple instances of slightly prominent hada, there are no kizu to warn you of.  Mounted in a well made shira-saya that is in excellent condition and with a copper habaki.

This blade comes with koshirae.  The tsuba is iron sukashi of a dragonfly (7.1 x 7.3 x .25 cm).  The fuchi kashira are shakudo with gold, quite nicely carved with a samurai battle scene.  The menuki appear to be arranged flowers.  The tsuka ito is intact but a bit loose (no idea why).  The saya is black lacquer, ribbed at the top, and in excellent condition.  There is a pocket for a kotsuka/kogatana but none come with the koshirae.

2 pounds, 14 ounces.  $1,750.
