You are looking at a Japanese Tachi Sword. A Tachi is has a belt/sash (obi) on the scabbard with the edge down. The blade has a maru construction. It is made from AISI 1095 carbon steel and it was sharpened to razor sharp level. It is fully functional and can be used for drills, practice and cutting tests.
The blade features a Bo-Hi (groove) for better balance and a audible feedback when the sword is swung. The Kissaki is medium with a well defined Yokote. The sword is full tang and comes razor sharp.
The saya is wooden (rosewood) with a dark brown finish. The saya has been crafted to contour the shape of the blade and it fits seamlessly into the handle. The handle is the same rosewood as the saya. When the sword is sheathed the handle and saya look like one solid piece. The handle has been crafted to contour to the tang of the sword, and the shape of your hands. A double pin secures the tang in the handle of the sword.
