Gendai Morimichi

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here happen to have reference for a gendai smith named Morimichi? I was visited by a young new collector at my office yesterday with a recent acquisition that he actually picked at Gold & Silver Pawn, Las Vegas. I don't see any reference to this smith or kao. The blade is dated Showa 13.

I found a listing for him in Fuller & Gregory's Guide to Shows Swordsmith's. I know this probably won't help much.

Ray,

 

Looks like he is also listed in the translated index to Tokyo Kindai Tosho on Richard Stein's Japansese Sword Guide site. You might reach out to Chris Bowen and see if he has any info on him. I hope this helps.

Ray, I recently purchased a flexible gouge device for wood carving from China that attaches to a Dremel tool. The signature on the nakago looks as though it could have been made by the same type of tool. Just a WAG.
