Jigane: The highest grade polishing is applied, and the polishing brings out the wonderful ground iron and blade crest.
The Matsukawa skin is well visible on the ground, and the boil is thick, making it a rounded Jigane in the Uzumaki style.
Hamon: Konie deki Nioikuchi is deeply attached sunagasi. kinsuji. Inazuma ga actively hataraku Nie hennka’s subject is well showing.
Special feature: It can be said that the beauty of this Jitetsu is that it becomes an unparalleled base iron and the beauty of the blade crest is also a work that flew with gold streaks, sand streams, and lightning. Norishige is a work very similar to Masamune’s blade crest. Both subways are highly rated. Jigane, who claims to have pine bark skin, is fiercer than Masamune. The Matsukawahada of this work has a slightly gentle dignity and is excellent in polishing, so you can see the work in the blade, and the base iron is also excellent.
Saya: Vermilion lacquered Higo Uchikatana Koshirae
Tsuba: Left and right pine watermarks, wave and drizzle design

From Aoi Art: This Higo Koshirae is old and has been specially preserved. The vermilion-lacquered scabbard has small flaws, but it shows the passage of time and must never be repainted.
The top-class Norishige and the Higo Uchikatana Koshirae, which goes well with it, are in perfect harmony. This is a work I would definitely recommend. It is a work of the late Kamakura period Enkei era 1308, about 615 years later. Well done until now, carefully preserved “It was done.” I think that it has been kept important as a famous product.
