Special feature: It is said that Emura was working
at the Okayama prison during war time. I think the the Capability is higher
than regular Nagamitsu. If the blade is polished like this sword,
the blade looks much better than Yasukuni shrine blade like Yasunobu
and Yasushige class.
In the future, Emura will be accepted high reputation.

From Aoi Art: I think in the near future,
Other Gendai blade including Emura and
Nagamitsu will have nice reputation in the future
and also expectation of the rising price.
It will be hard to buy such kind of swords in the future.

Special feature : It is said that Nagamitsu has worked as leader of
prison officer with Nagamitsu.
As you know during war time, uncountable swords were made during war time.
Yasukuni shrine blade are well known sword smith because of the high quality.
These swords were made carteful attention for polishing and quality itself.
But for instance Nagamitsu and Emura also made a lot of blade with poor polishing.
But if you check the blade more carefully,some Nagamitsu and Emura
is remarkable work much better than Yasukuni blades.
I think in the near future, Other Gendai blade including Emura and
Nagamitsu will have nice reputation in the future
and also expectation of the rising price.
It will be hard to buy such kind of swords in the future.
