    A weak nakago and cheap tsuba which would lead one to the conclusion it is a Chinese copy. In the future, more complete pictures of the blade and fittings would help. From these pictures, walk away.

    As John said, the characters on the nakago are not Japanese. I did not even see them in the first picture.
