Long And Large Shinshinto Katana Signed Kurihara Chikuzen No Kami Nobuhide
Posted 20 February 2017 - 07:19 AM
There are surface scratches throughout The blade with spots of rust that were treated with uchiko and choji oil with tiny spots of minor pitting. There are a few tiny chips in hi, but no fatal kizu noted The blade has a nice, flamboyant hamon, good sori and is large and wide overall. The blade would be an excellent for polish and shinsa. However the yasurime and mei appear to be inconsistent with the smith, which points to gimei. One side appears gunome midare with the other appearing quite a bit more flamboyant. It is well done and possibly by the Ishido school. This blade is a monster that appears to have been made to fight!
Comes in it's shirasaya which is cracked and has an extra hole that the vet made to take off the tsuka.
