Tachi - Sukemitsu - AJSA Certificate - Shirasaya Koshirae - Ubu Nakago - Gendai Era


This tachi is a very long and dynamic piece with a blade length reminiscent of the samurai of the late Edo period. Its practical and utilitarian appearance is very much in the style of a Japanese sword. The blade is brilliantly forged and the itame hada is very beautiful. The notare hamon expresses small waves, and the gunome is comfortably and rhythmically mixed, making this an art sword that can be enjoyed for both practical use and appreciation.
