Tadayoshi VI., appointed title Omi (no) Kami in 1800. He Died 1815; Hawley: TAD 293, 30 Points Blade is in good polish with some tiny scratches. Two small areas of spider rust which have been cleaned - so there is no rust on the blade remaining. Signature is maybe Gimei but it is anyway a very healthy and high quality blade in very good condition. Army mounts are of superior quality and the handle is in good condition with some fraying (see pictures).

No nicks, bends or flaws.
