¥450,000 ¥500,000

A very unique katana is now available that is very beautiful and in excellent preservation condition, and yet has the names of two completely different swordsmiths engraved on the same katana. The names "Mutsunokami Daidosaku" and "Suruganokami Morimichi" are engraved on the front and back, respectively.

Mutsunokami Daido is said to be the grandson of Shizu Saburo Kaneuji nine generations later, and is known as a master swordsmith like Kanetsune and Kanefusa from the late Muromachi period. Originally active under the name Kanemichi, he presented a sword to Emperor Ogimachi in 1569 (Eiroku 12) and was appointed " Mutsunokami" by him, receiving the name "Dai," which he used as an opportunity to change his name to Daido.
Morimichi the first was born in the country of Mino in 1558, moved to Kyoto to make swords, and eventually moved to Owari in 1610 when Yoshinao, Ieyasu's ninth son, became the lord of Nagoya Castle, and became the swordsmith at the service of the Owari clan. Both Daido and Morimichi are master swordsmiths representing the Keicho period of the Edo period.

This sword is in excellent condition, with no flaws, chips, dents, or rust. The hada is a well-packed koitame like konuka, with yubashiri and chikei clearly visible. Hamon is a large notare with konie mixed with gnome. Hataraki such as kinsen are also active in Ha.

The Uchigatana koshirae is in new condition with modern materials. The motif of a dragonfly, called kachimushi in Japan since ancient times, is used.
