This is one of the best swords I have listed for sale here. Etchu (no ) kuni Kunihisa is one of the best smiths of the Uda school and was a student of the great Nanbokucho Ko-Uda smith Kunifusa. Kunifusa himself was a Norishige student and produced spectacular work (as seen in my formerly owned Kunifusa wakizashi which recently resold here). This Kunihisa katana shows a lot of that same quality, with a spectacular gonome-midare hamon having areas of togari-gonome with kinsuji & sunagashi everywhere. The hamon breaks out into tobiyakai, some of which extend up to the shinogi. The blade measures 2 shaku 2 sun 6 bu (68.5cm) with a very deep sori. It has a top class niju-kinkise habaki and is in shirasaya. There is a beautifully executed kinpun-mei (gold lacquer signature) with great color. The NBTHK issued a kanteisho affirming the attribution on the nakago. This is a really great sword, with wonderful workmanship and old attribution to an excellent smith upheld in the present day. Whoever buys this is going to be very, very pleased.
