    More will be added later.

    A big, beautiful blade in Bugei's Swedish powder steel with classic, reserved aesthetic. In very good shape with smartly assembled furniture, tight and even itomaki, and a snug-fitting saya with thick, pristine lacquer.

    From Bugei's website:
    The "Shobu" Katana is a warriors blade that hearkens back to the 14th century, a strong beautiful blade in the robust, classic Shobu Zukuri style. This sword is an exceptional cutting blade as the samurai proved against the Mongol invaders where this style of sword proved more effective against the Mongol armor. This style of robust shobu zukuri evolved from the naginata/nagamaki that were renowned for their strength and cutting power. Shobu Zukuri means iris leaf, which refers to the shape of the beautifully curved kissaki.
    I am selling the Bugei Shobu with a pretty shobu tanto in spring steel that makes a nice pairing. I have had this item for years as a mantle display and it was well taken care of with little or no signs of wear. It has uncommonly refined furniture for a production piece.

    As another user pointed out, the tanto appears to be kanmuri otoshi as opposed to shobu.

    What's the length of the katana and tanto, and handle length of each?

    The Shobu katana is the 11" tsuka 28" blade model, and the tanto has an approximately 5" tsuka and 11" blade (including habaki - just shy of 10" not including). Let me know if you want that in cm.
