What does this mean?

Dear Dirik,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and for your patience.

It is a lovely Katana that judging from the style of this sword, from Sengoku period. Very good condition, no signals of use and age (blade, Saya and Tuba) and no broken parts. It looks like the 
Tsuba is made of thick remaining iron. The kashira is also made of leather, possibly.

In addition the traditional Clay Tempering method was used on this blade. Clay tempering method is to apply clay on the spine of the blade, and mainly tempering the edge. This results a hardened edge and softened spine, makes it ideal for cutting. 


Such pieces are being offered at auction on a regular basis. 


PROVENANCE: Gallery / Dealer
$ 200 - 400
