    I think it may be a Japanese fake, one of the older ones as they're getting better nowadays.

    Here's a genuine one, note the differences in the quality, the handle finish, the shaping around the knuckle holes and the more practical crossguard. Also the lettering, the ampesand is completely different in shape and the spacing of the letters and numbers is noticably different. I know that there are several variations on the original type due to different tooling, but this one imo is a repro, and the fact that it's unfinished is another red flag as far as i'm concerned. Genuine versions with blade and scabbard can easily go for over $1000.

    Regards, Ned.
