Koto Mihara Katana

Signature: Bushu Mihara Masazane
Year Made: Koto/1500
Forging Pattern: Mokume-Itame
Tempering Pattern: Suguha with Ko-Midare
Dimensions:   Blade Length:  26.5 ", Nakago: 7.8", Mihaba: 1 1/8", Sakihaba: 7/8", Kasane: 1/4", Sori: 7/16"  
Mountings:  The habaki is one piece copper, it is solid but not very well proportioned.  Rest of the fittings are junk.
Overall Condition: The blade is O-Suriogi but solid with no significant problems below the shinogi that a good polish won't remove.  There are some forging openings in the shinogiji that will be minimized in a polish if not removed.  There is plenty of hamon that this can be corrected when polished.
