Grain looks O Tame (large wood grain).In old polish good condition. Mounts are black lacquer wood scabbard mounted in horn to match hilt. Horn mounts fish skin wrap to handle. No menuki have been used. Medium export quality made late Meiji period Circa 1890’s. Tang end is Kuri Jiri shape, decorative Sujiki (slanting) file marks. Hamon is Notare (undulating)”.
