Mihara Wakizashi


Recommended Posts

NBTHK judged Hozon Mihara (Chu-Mihara, rougly ~1400) Wakizashi. Some slight kizu, one neat kirikomi (blocking mark, where the blade blocked a strike from another blade).




Blades described as "Mihara" by the NBTHK are also sometimes called "Chu-Mihara" and were made around the Oei period (roughly 1400 AD).



With a good polish and resubmission this may paper to Ko-Mihara.




Mihara was a school in the Bingo province which for much of history was owned by the famed Mori clan, known to be masterful sailors and who due to the location of Bingo were in regular conflict.




Comes with shirasaya and sword bag, NBTHK Hozon (new papers, not the defunct old ones) papers, and translation of NBTHK by Markus Sesko.
