Hi All,

I have the following for sale. Custom projects necessitate selling a few items.




I have a Darryl Guertin Keicho Shinto katana made in 1070 steel forged in a U no Kubi Zukuri style. This blade is forged in U no Kubi Zukuri (cormorant’s neck), which is like Shinogi zukuri in the belly of the blade (close to the nakago), and Shobu Zukuri in the upper part.

This cutting sword should do well in kata.

Specifications:
Blade length (from Tsuba): 29" nagasa
Overall Length:
Saya Length:
Tsuka Length: 11 inches
Sori: .75inch torii sori
Menuki, Fuchi and Kashira: Dragonfly themed
Tsuba:
Weight: 2 lbs 9.1 oz
Steel: 1070
Koshi-hi
U no Kubi zukuri
Balance- About 4.75” from tsuba
Nagasa - 29.2 inch munemachi
Motohaba - 1.2 inches
Sakihaba - 1.1 inches

I have not used this katana for any cutting. It has been polished and re-etched by me. It has been on display in my house. Only damage is to the saya's end. My dog ran under my feet, causing me to drop the katana in saya. No damage to katana, but saya's laquer was chipped off in two small spots on the end of the saya. No other damage.

Price is $600. You pay for shipping/handling/insurance.

If you’re interested or need more pictures, let me know.

Thanks,

Jeff

I forgot to mention that I am including a custom sword bag. It is 53 inches long, by 6 inches wide and has 16 inch ties.
