|Mint Kyu Gunto with hanger and knot|
Forging Pattern: Machine made blade
Tempering Pattern: Machine made with no Temper
Dimensions: Nagasa: 26 11/16", Nakago: 6 7/7", Mihaba: 1 1/16", Sakihaba: 3/4", Kasane: 1/4", Sori: 9/16"
Mountings: WWII D-Handle koshirae with chrome saya. The koshirae is in good condition except for a small dent. There is an Aoi mon of shakudo on the handle. The attached chain hanger and cord and fob are in good condition.
Overall Condition: The blade appears to have had some rust on it at some point and has been sanded including, I believe, the nakago. The fine scratches make it hard to see detail or especially photograph but it has full temper. There is one small opening in the hamon and the tip has been chipped but otherwise the blade appears solid. The one piece copper habaki will need to be replace as part of a restoration but is solid enough to hold tight.
