Koto Katana with Horimono in Koshirae

Recommended Posts

I dare to see that this is a nice Koto Katana in Edo periode Koshirae. I have owned this sword for many years and the common oppinion is Mihara school. No doubt about Koto periode. I dare to say that this is a quality sword with much to enjoy. Good Horimono. Nice Hada. There are long Chikei. The blade is in polish with some small nail catchers in the cutting edge whoch the last polisher choose to not remove as they are minor versus the metal removal needed.

 

The Koshirae consist of a Moko iron Tsuba, Soten style Fuchi / Kashira and Menuki and a black Urushi saya with some lacquer losses as expected with an old things.

 

Again please excuse my poor photography. I can not gurantee that the blade looks better in person than on my lousy images.

 

USD 4500,- plus shipping. Located in Europe so no custom fees.

Interesting - it is very clear it has seen battle damage and has been reworked. So, for those who like their blades with evidence of combat here we have one.

I think I like it but I don't buy flaws so,In image five Lois it looks like an area of delamination.

Are there any flaws or open grain on this sword at all?
