    Hi Pierre , i like the Katana very much , it looks to have a very nice blade . Also it has the mountings of a naval officer .

    Hi again Pierre , thanks for showing these markings , it`s a very nice blade . The saya is a civilian one that has been added maybe as a replacement . A naval saya would have two belt hangers on it and top quality examples were sometimes covered with sharkskin and then laquered......beautiful items !

    absolutely beautiful blade there pierre! i personally would not lament the civilian saya too much. given the numbers of fakes and forgeries out there, a find like this is imo truly exceptional, these blades only go up in value, and will continue to do so, as fewer and fewer swordsmiths are taking up the hammer.
    thank you it is always a treat to see great originals like this!
