Special feature: This sword has Mei as Bizen Osafune Ju Sukesada but we do not guarantee it. Sukesada usually carve his name Bishu but never carve Bizen, so we think this sword can not pass NBTHK Shinsa. Also this sword’s Kissaki is about
10cm, but there is no Bizen sword like this. But the quality of the sword is good, so if you erase the Mei, we think the sword will pass.
