Great Nihonto katana signed ” Bizen Osafune Sukesada” and dated in 1575, “3th year of Tensho era”.
Amazing Long Katana blade of really good quality hard to see in pictures. Very welthy jihada with a lot of patterns and clear nie and nioi crystals on hamon, an amazing blade with spectacular hamon. The Azuchi momoyama era is one of the shortest and most important eras in the history of Japan, an era of conflicts and fights between the feudal lords to gain control of the whole country that would lead to the victory of Tokugawa and the beginning of the Edo period, the most flourishing and iconic of all history. The sword is signed and dated by the Sukesada master smiths, one of the most important and longest line of craftsmen in the history of Japan.

-1575 (Tenshō 3, 5th month): Takeda Katsuyori led an army into Tōtōmi Province where he lay siege to Nagashino Castle. The Tokugawa defended the castle; and Tokugawa Ieayasu sought assistance from Oda Nobunaga. In response, Nobunaga and his son Nobutada arrived at Nagashino with a large force. In the ensuing Battle of Nagashino, the Takeda attackers were forced to retreat.

-1576 (Tenshō 4): Takeda Katsuyori ordered the rebuilding of the Asama Shrine at the base of Mount Fuji in Suruga Province.[5] Construction of Azuchi Castle beginns.

A very healthy blade with a superb polish on 95% of the blade, with only a few small details and superficial scratches that do not affect the quality and strength of the swordwith almost 500 years of history dated. You can clearly see the quality of the sword and the beautiful jihada and hamon produced by the tamahagane steel forging process that used different densities and folds to make Japanese swords, the best swords ever created. In a great Koshirae in very good condition from Edo period with very good materials in great condition, a sword that clearly recommend.

The blade is in old japanese polish remaining in good condition, the jihada of the steel is detailed and full of details to appreciate. A masterpiece Worthly a museum and a great addition to any private collection.
