Katana "Hida-no-kami Ujifusa" (fake?)
blade length 70.3cm, curvature 1.0cm, thickness at the base 8mm, width 3.3cm
This is a heavy blade with well designed hamon. It has a signature of "Hida-no-kami Ujifusa" who is a smith in Owari province in 17th century.
Steel has a wood grain layer pattern.
Hamon is a well designed gunome pattern made of small particles. It is bright.
It is confusing that the blade looks from 19th century for our eye. If so, the signature is fake. Some person says the signature is OK, and the smith tried various style of blades. So this is one of his exceptional works. We don't know the truth, but the price is not very expensive. It may be good for cutting performance.
Signature "Hida-no-kami Fujiwara Ujifusa"
Habaki is silver foiled.
