Itame in the ji, masa in the shinogi ji.   Tiny edge chips in the kissaki.   

The tan tsuka has negligible fuchi-kashira, good old same with repairs, copper grape menuki.  The large Namban tsuba is clearly an import.  Very good intaglio dragons, and most of the nunome is intact.  8.66 cm x 8.465 cm x 4.39 mm.  This will benefit from a little judicious cleaning, and might well be worth keeping for itself.  The brown and black stippled saya is in good shape, missing only the horn kojiri.  $2,500
