Koto Ubu Katana

Signature:  Not  legible
Year Made:  Late Koto

Forging Pattern:  Itame mixed with masame
Tempering Pattern:  Ko midare with gonome 
Dimensions:   Nagasa 27 9/16", Nakago:  7 7/8", Mihaba:  1 1/8", Sakihaba:  11/16", Kasane:  7/32", Sori:  9/16"  
Mountings:  In shirasaya that looks old but I believe it has been stained which is of little consequence .  The shirasaya is solid.  The habaki is one piece made to look like a two piece gold and silver combination.  It is starting to split along the ha and is a little banged up but is still fairly tight and servicable.
Overall Condition:  The blade is solid and the polish is good enough to see the forging and temper. Three is a remnant of a signature that someone attempted to remove. Selling this as an unsigned blade, and priced accordingly.
