Special feature: Yasuyoshi is a Yasukuni swordsmith, who made swords in Yasukuni shrine. He made relatively less swords than others, so it is rare to find his works.

Koshirae : Army Gunto Koshirae, in excellent condition, the back of the sword strap is vermilion, so it’s a plasterer class major, lieutenant colonel. Considered to be the property of a colonel class.

From Aoi Art: In general, Yasukuni swords have flaws and rust on the base iron, unless they are in a very bad state of preservation, they are removed at the stage of production, so a solid work remains. In addition, it can be said that many of the swords are suguha deki, reflecting the works of old swords.
This product has good blade crests as well as the ground iron, with the legs working in mutual disorder. It is a work that was owned by a plasterer-class soldier with a neat and beautiful work. Recently, the number of high-quality military armor is decreasing. This work is in very good condition, and the sword inside is also a wonderful Yasukuni sword. It is a work that I would definitely recommend.
