28" (2 shaku, 2 sun, 4 bu) blade, 1.125" wide at collar with Ihori mune (angled back) and chu kissaki (medium point). Visible hada (grain) with midare notare hamon (irregular temper line). 7.5" nakago (tang) with single mekugi-ana (peg hole) and two-character katanamei (signature) reading kuni hiro. Shakudo koshirae (mounts) with fuchi and kashira (collar and pommel) featuring spring seasonal themes including blossoming trees and fish. Silvered copper habaki (collar) and 3" shakudo tsuba (guard) with gilt edge displaying en suite sprouting bamboo motif. Brass dog menuki (ornaments). Wood saya (scabbard) with military-style leather cover.
Very good. Blade is mostly bright with some minor areas of delamination and spider rust. Cutting edge shows only some minor imperfections. Some loss of plating to shakudo but retains an attractive luster. All-around very attractive.
