Koshirae : Navy Gunto Koshirae

From Aoi Art: This sword is long wide, thick and solid. The number of Navy Gunto is very small because they disappeared with the ship. The one Mekugi hole is very rare and valuable. It can be thought that owner was a high-ranking person. It is also thought that he had a relationship with the Takada school. It seems that it was made aiming at Ichimonji. There are also Utsuri. We recommend this sword for you.
