I wouldn’t waste yours, his, or our time on it. It’s definitely a modern Chinese fake and the signature is going to be gibberish.

It’s hard to get someone to open the pocket book for the real deal, doubt anyone will be fooled at $6k.

It looks good to me. Dated Showa 18. Signed Nobu?mitsu.

This is not in very good condition and I would recommend passing and waiting for a better one.

You do realize those are your words from one of your prior posts right? Hence the quotation marks and citation. I guess it was a bit of a cheap shot really.

Of the 2 comments related to the sword, it looks like one questioned the integrity of the nakago and I’m not alone as you claim. The other I spoke to on the phone this morning to discuss the sword...

Mixmaster - early tsuka, late tsuba and fuchi. Looks like it was cleaned with an abrasive and no visible hamon/Hada. Might be okay if you needed some of the parts, otherwise not much to look at.

Sometimes the punch goes through the mekugi as seen here rather than pushing it out.

Legit Type 98. Fittings are in nice shape, but shame about the condition of the blade.

Made by Kanesada in Sept 1943. Looks like someone shined it up for you, but the sword is an original Type 98.
