This is a truly exquisite piece of samurai art that also comes with a double certificate, on the one hand a tokobetsu hozon attributed to “越州敦賀住光行 esshū tsuruga ju mitsuyuki” a very nice smith from very early muromachi era ( this shinto swords are really hard to see in auctions and sales).

A sword with arround 700 years in marvelous condition. It also keeps the kozuka, which is rare as they tend to be lost or sold separately. The blade is signed. Also the tsuba has the signature of the artisan.

The second most important rank of the NBTHK association, the most important in the world in the certification of Japanese swords, as well as a Hozon origami for the Koshirae. Which proves that this splendid piece is worthy of the best collectors. Even in most European museums it is difficult to find pieces with this rank of certification. They are rare and even with the right money they are hard to find at an affordable price.

The blade was much longer when it was made but during the Edo period it was shortened to suit the fighting of the time, more in cities than on battlefields. It is easily noticeable as the Ken’s Horimono that went through the blade now belongs to the Nakago or tang. Only one Bonji (o’suriage) is preserved on the blade. The koshirae is magnificent edo period iron with numerous gold plated bronze inlays that remain in a very good state of preservation keeping most of the gold. The koshirae is complete and all the pieces match and are original.

A wonderful piece worthy of keeping to admire or as a future investment, as these high quality swords with high rank certificates are rare and therefore not only keep their price, but rise every year.

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.

Blade is in very good condition due to aging. Not hagire and not fatal damage, of course. This is a japanese weapon so have a real historical value. This is a weapon with centuries, not machine crafted so can be minor movements of saya, tsuka, tsuba, etc. Because of dilatation, humidity, etc. and little damages propers of his age like small rust, scratches, etc.. Sold as is.

All my swords are originals, imported from japan and Europe from the best dealers and collectors during many years of collection and passion.
