This sword was made as a greatly shortened Nanbokucho sword. The blade after shortening measures 26 1/2 (67.3 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine. This sword has amazing horimono carving. Since this sword was shortened, much of the horimono carving is on the nakago under the tsuka/handle.The reverse side of the blade has buddhist characters carved. This sword is in full polish. The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy. The mounts on this sword are quite nearly perfect with just one dent in the saya/scabbard from the War. Croix Blades buys Japanese swords!
