An o-suriage shinto wakizashi. Hawatare: 1 shaku 8 sun 6 bu 6 rin. (55.96cm / 22.03). Motohaba: 2.53 cm. Sakihaba: 1.98 cm. Kasane: 6 mm. Shinogizukure, iroi mune, chu kissaki. Gunome, notare midare, togare, yo, ko-nie, sunagashi, ashi iri, nado. The jigane is a moist itame with chikei, with masame in the shinogiji. Mounted in shirasaya with a one piece copper habaki. The habaki is snug, and I did not want to force it to take the pictures. The blade is clean, however, there is a scuff line from rubbing in the shirasaya. This is an excellent blade for the new collector, martial artist, or a collector who wants to have the saya repaired and the polish touched up.
