Here are some photos of our tachi with the lacquered "string" saya... I purchased it in the late '80's. It is a 27.75 inches (70.5 cm) gendaito. Interestingly, we have two tachi by this smith, the nakago and mei are virtually identical, but the styles of the blades seem like they're at opposite ends of the spectrum. On this tachi I just finished rewrapping the tsuka and saya with ito that matched the orignal braid in color, weight, material (a silk cotton blend), and style... Any feedback on this blade would be more than welcome.
