An outstanding presentation Jian.

This very fine sword measures 95.5cms in its scabbard, 93.5cms long out and has a blade length of 70cms to the edge of the guard or 75cms to the tang.
The hilt is timber that has the grip covered in a well selected ray skin and finished with a bronze pommel, collar and guard, all of which have an original "Japanned" finish to them.
Through the hilt, there is a very rare and outstanding woven and plaited sword tassel that is in an amazing state of preservation. This tassel measures 65cms long.
The blade is a strong yet supple example and in original full bright polish.
The forte displays very fine frosted acid etched panels at which point a fine fuller runs through the blade's medial ridge. One etched panel is decorative in nature, the other showing characters indicating the steel type used in the blades manufacture. It is within this panel that a most unique set of characters are found pointing to the location of the sword's manufacturer.
The scabbard is timber bound with wire in the traditional pattern then lacquered. The two suspension fittings and drag are in an original bronze finish.

An exceptional sword throughout with unique features.
