    By the way.... It has a awful lot of seppas. Not right.
    It ones had a leather seppa with lock strap.

    Do you have better photos of the blade?

    The Tsuka belongs not original to this blade, the original Tsuka was shattered.

    Got my doubts about the leather combat cover.

    I would wait for a better complete example.

    The only reason a gendaito would be unsigned would be the fact that it had a flaw in it's forging and a one point rejected by a blade inspection committee. I learned this fact from Kaname Moriwaki(smith name Masataka)founder of the Minatagawa Jinga forge. I came across an unsigned example of his forge's work with only the kikusui mon stamp. This was the information he imparted to me. The blade was house in a low quality temporary shirasaya at the time I found it.
