It really does seem like someone sprinkled sand over the surface, very nice.

Hello:

 Is it well forged to have the jihada vary so much side to side?

Hello Stephen:

 If the jidada is so different  on both sides it makes me wonder how the kawagane plate would have been differentially fashioned prior to the insertion of the shingane, and aside from that how would the metal with differently woven interlacings of the steel in the kawagane respond to the stresses of actual use. I have no idea but in that such side to side differences are hardly common, what is the point and what are the consequences? The differences might seem visually interesting, but what are the practical effects if any?

Hey Arni

 

If i was being practical id enjoy its visual beauty and wonder if its the same Hidenobu who also signed Chounsai Toshimune .

Hi Stephen:

 Almost certainly I would think as hardly anyone else signed that way.

In the light angle shot they provide I wondered why the hamon on the right side is a bit more ragged than on the left, but to be honest, until nearer the nakago end of sword, it's hard to say the jihada is very different on both sides. It's visually a stunning work and healthy (hamachi notch very good). I would request a real light picture, but with such a short time in auction, they probably can't get to it.
