Overall Condition: This is a solid wak with no significant Kizu visable. It looks like someone used a file on part of one side and fine sandpaper on part of the other side possibly trying to clean it. There is a one pice copper habaki that is splitting on the bottom. This blade has a good feel/balance to it and would clean up nicely with a polish.
