From Aoi Art: In this work, the Taihai is well-kneaded, the Jigane is well-kneaded,
Hadatachi and Jinie are attached, and Chikei is mixed.
The way to cut the inscription is also interesting, elegant, and fun. Naminohira sword makers have been continuously made since Masakuni, and are divided into Ko-
naminohira, Middle Naminohira, and Sue Naminihira, and reach the end of Shinshin to through Shinto era. In this work, the Jigane has a unique atmosphere of Hadatachi, and
one of the best polish was done by the high ranking polisher, so Jigaane and Hamon are often drawn out and bring back excitement to what they see. If you take a closer look,
the detailed Kinsuji works and there is a change in Hamon of Bo-shi, so I definitely
recommend this work to everyone. There are no flaws or drawbacks.
The Tachi Koshirae that comes with it is a wonderful work, and it is a work that was
made with a practical focus and is a wonderful work.
It’s not flashy, but I highly recommend this dignified work.
This sword with Koshirae is a consignment item, but we fully recommend this sword.
