    I am pretty sure it is modern, made to look old. The casting on the fittings is kind of crude, and they have an overall look of many similar modern fakes. Also, the blade does not look like it has ever been re-sharpened. The steel does not look like it is folded sanmai. The wood and lacquer on the scabbard and the brass on the chape do not show typical signs of age. Try looking down into the scabbard and see if it looks old.
