This sword came from a veteran estate and has been professionally and properly restored, with the intention of using it for martial arts by the previous owner.

 

An impressive sword by a well known Edo Period maker, it features a very thick blade with almost no curvature, and it's original old mounts.  The lacquer work and large nickel seppa were redone by Josiah Boomershine.  The fittings  (fuchi, kashira, koiguchi, and kojiri are all late Higo school and match. They are made of iron with matching designs of gold inlay.  The temper line is incredibly active.

 

The tsuba (guard) is crafted from a beautiful iron plate with inlaid silver rain dragon. The matching menuki are buddhist ken swords, and the handle has been professionally re-wrapped for cutting.

 

The blade was polished by the renowned sword polisher Bob Benson, and papered Hozon by the Japanese sword museum, the NBTHK.  This sword is in excellent condition and is in fresh polish.
