hi geordie
the specs are (as best as i can remember) its a 28 inch carbon steel blade
an 11 stuka a 0.25 inch thick tsuba sharp as s**t the harmon is a bit of a strange
one its not wire brushed on neither is it acid etched but is one of the nicest ive
seen in a long time it is an early masahiro going by the laser etched (china) near the
habaki on the right side of the blade (you holding the blade pointing away from you
cutting edge down) the only minor downside is the plasticky same(rayskin) but for what
it cost when i bought it i cant really complain oh overall lenght in the saya is 40 and 5- 8ths
long blade thickness at the habaki is just over 7mm
