From Aoi Art: Kanenori usually just make Katana and Wakizashi so his Yoroi-Doshi with his genuine signature is very rare. As you can see in the photos, the Mune is very thick and Kissaki is sharp. The sword was made at end Muromachi but the condition is good and Hamon is still clear. The sword already passed Tokubetsu Hozon, we strongly recommend this sword.
