From Aoi Art: This work is supposed to be genuine. In the late Edo period, many swordsmiths made their living by making swords, however, they suddenly lost their job because of Haito Edict done in the Meiji period. Maybe he tried his best to make this sword with his great Jigane, shortly after he knew about the Haito Edict. Ububa is left, and the blade is in an extremely healthy condition. We truly recommend this to you.
