Special feature: Hiromitsu is the best-known swordsman of Soshu
in Nanbokucho era, and this work is wide and healthy wonderful shape.
We have never seen such a big work. This is a work of Hiromitsu
who has a healthy ground blade, excellent Yo,
and the highest jigane and kinsuji. If it is a normal blade crest,
the nioi is soft and the blade stain etc. is conspicuous,
but this work makes you feel the hardness, keeps the figure
of the era and the bullion, blade crest well produced
with less polishing The Hiromitsu is so big that it is regrettable
that it is unsigned. It makes me think why it exists.
The intensity of the scenery is a special feature.
We strongly recommend this big size hibachi wakizashi for you.
