From Aoi Art: This work is Mumei(unsigned). We judge this as Bizen-mono made in the mid Muromachi period, regarding its great Jigane and Hamon that is similar to Nioi-deki. There are many rough parts in Jigane, but Koshirae is good and there is some Chojimidare in Hamon. It doesn’t bore you and we truly recommend this to you.
