Hozon Jumyo Shinto Katana with Beautiful Handachi Koshirae

Recommended Posts

Little sad to move this on but for sale is a fine long Ubu Mumei Katana with Bo-Hi with NBTHK Hozon attribution to the Jumyo school. A very elegant blade with plenty of activity in the Hamon, the polish is excellent as well. It comes with a beautiful Edo period Handachi Koshirae with Wakasa Lacquer Saya, not quite sure what the fittings are made of, maybe Shakudo but it reminds me more of a rich gun bluing. Regardless the photos tell the story and this sword has entertained me for years but time to move it to another good home.

EDIT: Shugyosha was kind enough to inform me the Hozon attribution is in reality to Jumyo, not Bungo Takada.

Yes, it is very beautiful and seems abnormally time consuming. I've kept my eye out for other old Saya with this but haven't seen too many. The regular Wakasa lacquerware is quite expensive.
