I have tried to describe the condition of this item, including any defects, as accurately as possible. I have added many photos of the item, so please make your assessment based on the photos. The sword stand is not included in the auction.
We have tried to verify the signature as good as possible, the signature on the sword is not verified because there is no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification paper) present with the sword.
To be reasonably sure about the maker of a specific sword, it is necessary to submit the sword to one of the most important Japanese sword study groups (NBTHK or NTHK) for shinsa (inspection). These organisations will judge the sword and draw up documents (origami) describing the authenticity and/or historic value of the sword.
