Mouth is fine. Blade has some rusting but not anything that will affect it's use I don't think after you sharpen it..Interesting Japanese plane that I know you will like...Starting auction off low with no reserve and as always actual postage charged depending on where you live [weighs just over 1 lb boxed to ship]
