40" total length with 28 3/4 blade of traditional form, tool finished with transverse grain and long copper "habiki" marked KA-DI. Grip wrapped in traditional form with silhouette form menuki. Copper kashira and fuchi with the inscription repeated as monograms. Thick copper tsuba decorated with bold chisel pattern. Scabbard with matching copper mounts and simulated leather covering. Appears to be the work of a talented amateur, perhaps to study the process of making a Japanese sword.
