From Aoi Art: This sword is a work of Kouzuke Jyunin Tanemune, and has been
polished quite well. Also gold-filed double habaki.I think that it will be the best
masterpiece of his sword. Regarding according to the sayagaki The most well known
sword judge Honami Nisshu Twhich was written that the sword was made at Kigen2600
(Showa 15) in the imperial era. Aoi Art sets the selling price for blades, polishing, and
habaki, regardless of their history. It is wonderful work, so I definitely recommend it.
