This a nice hand-made katana sword made by a master sword smith by hand. This katana has a handmade two hundreds folded blade with design saya.
Real handmade swords have a wood grain like pattern in the outer skin called the jihada. It comes from laminating many layers of steel to made the blade flexible. The blades are made by starting with a piece of hard steel to serve as the foundation of the sword. The skin or is made of hundreds of layers of softer steel that serve as a way to make the sword more flexible and resistant to breaking. Nex

t the sword is covered in a ceramic like clay with just the cutting portion of the blade exposed and heated and tempered. This results in a very hard cutting edge on a flexible yet hard blade. Then the blade is adorned with artwork like the Tsuba and handle and scabbard.
The machine made blades are not as valuable, and don't have such a beautiful and important quality. It isn't certain how old this sword is and one would need an appraisal from a professional samurai sword expert for more information as I'm not an expert and haven't paid for an appraisal. This is a full size katana and is fully functional.
