completely Ubu Nakago and Ura Mei’s work is very rare
Jigane :koitame hada Well kneaded and Jinie is attached and it becomes a beautiful jihada and utsuri often appears
Hamon :Niedeki Cyoji midare Fukuro Cyoji is violently worked, Tobiyaki works and becomes Hitatsura style, Bo-shi, the table is disturbed and returns to Shinogi ji for a long time.
On the back side, as you can see Ichimonji’s masterpiece,
Ashi and Yo worked vigorously in In Hamon,
and it was bright and clear, Bo-shi, slightly rounded, and greatly
worked in Shinogi Ji.

Special feature:Hoki kuni Jyu Hiroga has an atmosphere similar to that of Soshuden, and Ho-ki Kami Hiroga, which combines the works of Hitatsura hamon and Ichimonji style, and the style of Rai style, is said to be the work of the Muromachi period Bunmei era. There are many Tanto productions, especially Jigane often produces Hitatsura Hamo, which is reminiscent of Zokumyo iri style sukesada.

From Aoi Art : Naginata of this work is very rare and can be said to be a valuable work with few Nengo (age). It is a slightly large naginata, and it is a work of February 6th year of Tensho, and it is imposing in Ubu nakago style. The gorgeousness of the blade pattern on the Ura side is so good that it can be called Ichimonji itself. It is a work that I would definitely recommend with a wild and intense Hamon.
