Japanese Katana Blade (project piece) . SJ220


Japanese old Katana blade. Single hole tang (nakago) is unsigned. Rough and very worn condition blade. No habaki (blade collar). Wood saya (scabbard) appears to be cracked in half and tied back together. Old blade that needs some decent fittings and either replaced or repair to the saya, project piece. I believe to be Edo period blade. Blade length appears to be approximately 28 1/4 inches (would be 27 1/4 inches if it had a habaki) and overall bare blade length is approximately 36 1/2 inches. So, this is a fairly long blade with nice curvature. Katana blades are typically greater than 23 5/8 inches (60 cm) (2 shaku).
