This sword has been assessed by UK Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg. A copy of his hand written notes & illustrations of the blade accompany the sword. In extracts from his notes he states “Civilian Gendaito Katana made in Gendai era 1868-1945. An un-signed but good piece of work. Total length 30 ½” cutting edge 24 ¾”. Hamon temperline is gunome midare edged with nioi crystals and a grain of O itame (large) wood grain. In fine polish has been well restored in last 50 years (possibly in Japan). New black lacquer saya mint condition and soft metal fittings. Good quality fuchi / kashira in (sentoku) of a village scene. Good menuki (cannot see what). Tsuba is copper inscribed with grasses and leaves. Tsuba and fittings are 19th century. Kojiri (bottom of saya mount) is circa 1800, iron with gold vine inlays good quality and condition. In his illustrations of the blade and tang he notes a polishers mark on the blade and slanted file marks sujikai on the tang. He also states tang end shape is Iryamaghta”. Also included is a later carry bag cover with draw cord. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2554
