For Sale: Sue-Bizen Katsumitsu Uchigatana

Recommended Posts

Absolutely stunning late Koto Bizen work. 

 

A single handed Uchigatana, poplular during this period. Uchigatana was a lighter single handed sword. A steep saki-sori, thin kasane and short nakago made this weapon a ease on the battlefield or in close quarters (indoors). 

 

Although this sword is mumei, it is attributed to Katsumitsu of Eisho era, makng this the 5th Generation Katsumitsu. Bizen no Kuni-ju Osafune Jirozaemon no Jo Katsumitsu. Son of 4th generation Ukyo no Suke Katsumitsu. 

 

Beautiful ko-mokume hada with ji-nie. Very active gunome-choji hamon with several tobiyaki. Boshi is ko-maru. This sword is completely flawless in every aspect and perfectly preserved. Attributed to a high ranking smith and polished by a high ranking polisher. Perfect example of Sue-Bizen craftsmanship. 

 

Nagasa: 61cm

 

Sori: 1.3cm

 

Kasane: 0.8cm (Yokote Kasane: 0.5cm)

 

Mihaba (machi): 3.1cm

 

Mihaba (yokote): 2cm

 

This sword was recently polished by master Togishi Koichi Eto in Japan. It is also accompanied by Kanteisho designated by the NTHK-NPO in Japan.

This Uchigatana is currently available for purchase: $9,500 USD

 

Best to reach me by email if interested, thank you.

Reall is a very attractive blade with good decent habaki. I would love to buy it and fit a longer tsuka on it but unfortunately like most I just cant afford it now. Good luck with the sale Travis, surely it will get snapped up soon.
