21.25" (1 shaku 7 sun 8 bu) shinogi-zukuri with chu kissaki (medium point) and ihori-mune (ridged back). Steel grain is unclear with visible distinctive sudare-ba hamon. 5.5" kurijiri nakago (tang) with two mekugi-ana (peg holes), katte agari yasurime (file marks), and five-character signature reading: "Tanba (no) Kami Yoshimichi". Mounts are of a typical gunto style.
Blade appears to be in half polish with some nioi visible in hamon. Blade has some minor spots of oxidation and light spider rust. Tang has a dark moist patina. A good example of a piece by this desirable and popular smith from the Mishina School.
