The hamon is suguba in shallow undulations in a consistent nioi guchi covered in compact ko nie; there are subtle hataraki. The boshi is a continuation of the hamon ending in ko maru with a medium length kaeri. The blade is perfectly flawless and perfectly in a professional grade polish (there isn't a mark on it), with a silver foil habaki and in well made shirasaya. There are a few shallow dents in the shirasaya. This sword comes with a Tokubetsu Hozon paper from the NBTHK dated 2008 and giving it to Godai (5th generation).

He received the title Omi no Kami in 1750; this wakizashi was made sometime in the last 25 years of his long life. This wakizashi, also, is very well made: a classic Hizen-to in immaculate condition. 2 pounds, 6 ounces. $4,650.
