This is NOT a toy and is very sharp. This blade was restored using proper togishi techniques. I had acquired this blade during my time spent studying in japan for school, and finally got around to restoring the blade around August of last year. I order all my whetstones from Japan and spent a lot of time restoring it to its original state. This blade has been signed, although I cannot translate the lower half due to my lack of fluency in Japanese..
I deal with a lot of blades so I can translate the upper half which is an era of Japan called Genbun which started in around mid-late 1730s and ended in the 1740s almost 30-40 years after the story of the 47 Ronin (fun history fact for you). The emperor of the Genbun era was Sakuramachi-tenn if anyone cares to know that. Message me for any questions you might have!
