Special feature: This is Ueno Kami Yoshikuni’s Daisho with large Wakizashi. The length difference is only 13cm. Hamon of both swords is Choji Midare with Gunome-Midare.

From Aoi Art:Ueno Kami Yoshikuni is from Oshu and was called Morishita
Sonbei and is big brother of Mutsu Kami Yoshiyuki. He studied from Yamato Kami Yoshimichi. He is the brother of Mutsu
Kami Yoshiyuki so their swords look very similar. His
swords also look same as Yamato Kami Yoshimichi, Kawachi
Kami Kunisuke 2nd, Higo Kami Kuniyasu. This is one of his masterpieces, we strongly recommend these swords.
