Shape : Osuriage Mumei. The blade is normally broad and thick with adequate Sori and longer Kissaki. Well-shaped.
Jigane : Koitamehada flows to Masa, Jigane is dense with light Shirakeutsuri.
Hamon : Nioideki, Gunomemidare with lots of Ashi. Boshi is Midarekomi and the tip turns back in a small circle.

Special feature: This work was judged as Takada by Hozon Token, and as Ujifusa by Tokubetsu Kicho Token. Takada works seldom have this kind of Midarekomi Hamon, while it obviously doesn’t look like Hamon of Ujifusa. But we admit the result of Hozon Token and deal with this item as it is.

Tsuba: Round-shaped iron Tsuba with family crest engraving.
Fuchikashira: Shakudo plate.
Saya: Odd black painted Saya
Menuki: On Shakudo plate, mandarin is engraved with copper color.

From Aoi Art: Nioideki work from the late Muromachi period. Kissaki is Midarekomi. It is really well-made and apparently it looks as if it were made before the mid Muromachi period. Jigane has no looseness, it is amazing. Koshirae is not great, but it used to be possessed by Samurai. It is really a well-made blade, which we can truly recommend for you. It has enough length, and is also worth appreciation.
