Specil feature: Dragons, flowers, bird and Shishi dog are engraved with high-quality brass inlay. Different from regular Hinawaju, this one is same as guns which called Bajo-zutsu. Bazyo-zutsu is medium size Hinawaju and use while riding horse for hunting and battle. The rifle range is about 30m.

From Aoi Art: From the design, we think it was made for feudal lord. This type of Hinawaju was popular around middle of Edo period but at around end of Edo period, European gun was import to Japan and it has higher performance than Japanese gun, so people stop to make Hinawaju.
This is one of the best Hinawaju and the quality is same as the guns which are exhibit at museums, it also has a designated Kiri box, and also ballets and bullet holder. We strongly recommend you the highest-ranking Hinawaju.
