An interesting katana blade in Vietnamese mounts.

One of the most interesting items seen in a while, a Japanese katana in Vietnamese mounts, a repurposed trophy of war or trade.
The sword is 89cms long and has a blade length of 68cms to the Tsuba or 65.5cms to the edges of the habaki.
The hilt is fixed solidly to the tang, likely in a traditional Vietnamese resin set fashion. It is constructed from various layers of copper sheet with the top layer displaying tradtional Vietnamese designs.
The Tsuba is also copper in a Vietnamese/Japanese style.
The blade is in good condition with a few minor nicks.

A good fighting sword with an interesting history. No scabbard.
