Special feature:Although it is named The Nagahiro, it is considered to be Meikanmore in my opinion, and it is considered to be a work of the Edo period Kanbun period.

Koshirae :
Saya :Black Nishime ji saya.
Tsuba :It is a work in which Mimi is set up with four notches in a thick circle and a flower pattern is carved. Inscription Nobuie. Nobuie has several Tsuba craftsmen, and it is unclear whether this work falls under that, but it was solid. It is a good tsuba that launched Mimi on iron Tsuba.
Menuki : A samurai wearing an armor helmet is engraved on the Syakudo plate and painted with gold.
Fuchikashira: Fuchi: Takabori a pattern in which several monkeys play on a rocky mountain with a waterfall flowing on an iron ground, and paint with gold.
Kashira: A warrior pulls out a sword. Highly carved and painted with gold

From Aoi Bijyutsu: Since it is a sword with the name Nagahiro and is not listed in the directory, it is considered to be a work that is missing from the directory. The result seems old and at first glance, it is thought to be a work from the end of the Muromachi period. I recommend it as an Iai practice and as an appreciation. There is also Koshirae, and Fuchikashira and menuki are also solid in Tsuba of Nobuie.
Tsukaito (thread)can be replaced for about 30,000 yen.
