    It is a Chinese reproduction. The makers in China have a tendency to over embellish the decoration on the fittings. The price alone indicates the owner is not trying to sell this as an original. It is evident the seller knows what he has. I would avoid any future dealings with such a scammer.

    It is amazing how talanted the Chinese are.
    They take pig turds and almost make them look like Japanese swords.
