Dear members,

 

Back again. And I hope you missed me. :)

 

 

So, here is another kantei: Katana, osuriage - mumei - nagasa appr. 69 cm

 

 

You can find the photos here: https://www.nihontop...-von-tamahagane.

 

First click on the photos. In the left upper corner ther are two arrows. Use them to enlarge the photos. Have fun and I will give the answer

next Tuesday.

 

A small hint: No, the blade is not in the blue book.

I cannot say from the patination of the Nakago as it is very bright (Like very) but if were to garner a guess then I am saying Rai Kunitsugu or Soshu Yukimitsu

Hi Uwe,

 

I'm struggling a little with the pictures - any chance of larger shots of the boshi and jigane?

 

Thanks,

John

 

I'll take a shot anyway - Nambokucho, Bingo, Ko Mihara.

 

My reasoning is that (I think) I see Nambokucho sugata with high shinogi line, strong chikei work in itame with some mokume with perhaps some sumitetsu, I think there's some shirake utsuri, hamon looks nioi based with maybe ko nie but I'm struggling to make out the boshi very well but I'm happy to make my guess based on the the other factors.

Boshi is very faint and I already "enhanced" this area. But I put a third photo on my site and I hope this one is more helpful.

I'm going to go with Komihara as well, simply because I used to own a Komihara blade with nearly identical hada, hamon and boshi. The hada is just a smidgen too loose for Aoe, and I can't see any masame that might push it to Tegai.

Hi Uwe,

thank you for entertaining us with these lovely pictures ;-)

 

The sugata reminds me of either late Kamakura Period or late Nambokucho/Beginning of Muromachi.

The hada is breathtaking. Reminds me of a sword with a debatable attribution to either Soshu Yukimitsu or Taima.

 

Since there are very many chikei, I guess it is neither of these. I can also understand an attribution to Kashu Sanekage or Uda ;-)

Well, the later is an excuse to not know what it is and so to dump it right in the "box of doom" ;-)

 

Greetings

Andreas
