    Saya condition is deprecable and many components of kashira are not original and some of them artificially aged but the worst thing is that blade cutting edge (nagasa) is not 68 but 66 as Declared!

    The condition of the saya is used and clearly visible in the photos. All parts of the koshirae are original and not artificially aged !!!!!!! If you can prove otherwise, I would take back the sword. I would not accuse someone without any evidence ... it is simply untrue!!!! The Nagasa of the sword is 68 cm according to my measurements.
    Very sorry for your negative reaction.
    Regards.

    item had een belangrijke beschadiging welke niet te zien was op de foto's en niet in tekst vermeld stond (zogezegd omdat de te weinig plaats heeft om dit te vermelden!?) Reactie verkoperwas ondermaats

    De oude beschadiging (scheurtje van 2-3 cm) in de saya is duidelijk te zien op een of twee van de foto's.Ik ben inderdaad beperkt met het aantal woorden in mijn beschrijving.
    24 juni schrijft de koper in zijn bericht aan mij dit: "U heeft nochtans mooie items te koop. Daarom had ik het ook leuk gevonden uw collectie eens live te kunnen zien en zo eventueel nog items te kopen."??????
