Bohi On Mune?

Recommended Posts

Probably just a whim of the maker.

It's a common enough feature on modern knives but certainly a rarity in this field...something I've definitely not seen before.

I have not seen that before. Funny enough none of my terminology bibles seem to have that term, or I am looking from the wrong places as I don't know the correct term.

 

Could this be called mune bori? :)

Don't think there will be a specific term for it, since it was just one smith experimenting.

I suppose mune horimono?

While I'm not sure the correct term either, I think horimono more appropriate than bohi.

I have seen a sword like this before and believe it is considered horimono rather than bohi. I have seen a few examples of swords with horimono moving from omote to ura, with the design continuing unbroken across the mune.
