Katana blade condition:

Recently polished by a Togishi master, very good general condition, preserving the exceptional sharpness typical of these blades, only some very light micro-folds discovered in the polishing that are practically invisible to the naked eye also two light black shadows can be seen on the Mune remains of old oxidation and a minimal black point just near Habaki more various dark signal under it, something unimportant that is cited only for an exact description. Watch detailled pictures please.
