Price: 
$2,075 + Shipping & Insurance

S124.  Sankaku (3 sided) yari signed Shimosaka.

Nagasa:  9 3/4"  25 cm cutting edge

Moto Haba:  2.5 cm.

Nakago Nagasa:  13 3/8"  33.8 cm.

Length of blade back to the nakago:  11"  27.7 cm.

Overall length in shirasaya:  30 1/2"  77 cm.

The hada is masame (of course, always that way on yari) and the hamon is a bright and soft nioi deki with just a hint of ko-nie.  The full length oshigata that is included with the sword will do a better job of describing the hamon than I can.  The blade is flawless and in polish (good quality Japanese polish, I believe) and mounted in well made shirasaya (which shows light traces of having been taped at one time, although now it is perfectly intact).  This comes with a Hozon paper issued in 2015 by the NBTHK in Tokyo. The oshigata comes with a scroll but it isn't attached to the scroll and I think that's for the best.  The scroll is nothing special and the green color shows through the oshigata paper.  This deserves to be mounted to a more appropriate scroll or matted and framed.  A purple sword bag is included also.

Quite the bargain here.  When you consider the cost of polish and paper you're not paying all that much for a fine, old yari.  1 pound, 10 ounces.  $2,075.
