Tachi - Yoshimitsu - AJSA Certificate - Shirasaya Koshirae - Ubu Nakago - Gendai Era
This is an excellent replica of the Sanchomo, a national treasure sword overflowing with gorgeous elegance, and is regarded as surpassing the original. The replicas of the Sanchomo made by Master Ohno are popular worldwide, but what makes this sword especially remarkable compared to his other works is that the late Fujishiro Matsuo, a legendary polisher who was a living national treasure, had this sword polished. It was so special that Ohno kept it in his home as part of his personal collection for a long time, and now he has given us special permission to sell it for Tozando. This Tachi comes with an official certificate from the All Japan Swordsmith Association.
