There is no rust, the blade is strait and sharp. The tsuka, tsuba, and saya all seem to be tight and fit well (though this is subject to change based on tempature and humidity levels) It fits well for me right now.
The sageo is not included but the sword is in good usable shape and has very little degradation. I made a youtube review of the sword a while ago and you can find more of my thoughts there if you are interested. Please expect a used blade and you will be satisfied with the condition. If you have any questions please contact me.
