Forging Pattern:  Itame/Mokume
Tempering Pattern:  Midare in Ko nie.

Mountings:  Original handachi mounts with shakudo and green aogai saya.  Menukis of plums and iron tsuba of dragons.  Very difficult to find a nice originally mounted sword in this condition.  Only thing missing is the horn kurikata which could be easily replaced.
Overall Condition:  Very good but blade could do with a polish.  Looks like someone too a grinder to the blade and left some scratches on the edge.
