15th Century Nobukuni Samurai Katana

This sword has been inspected and is signed on the tang with the signature of Nobukuni. This is not likely first generation, but likely third dating to the mid 1400s. The blade is clean and well balanced, but with some issues. There are some minor scratches, a small chip and someone has etched a design into the blade later in its life. This does not make the sword any less an original period sword, it just is not the high quality that purists with deep pockets are looking for in a sword. For the novias this sword has history, a real blade made by a well known school of sword smiths. The iridescent scabbard has a pattern in it very distinct and in good condition with insect theme decoration. It has two small knives/daggers mounted either side of the scabbard. An honest piece priced right for the beginner collector looking for a decent example of a real sword.
