Muromachi Bizen Norimitsu yoroidoshi tanto in beautiful koshirae

Recommended Posts

Really beautifully mounted Bizen Norimitsu tanto in koshirae which appears to have been based on Higo handachi fittings. The kojiri, koiguchi, and fuchigashira are all matched iron with a matching butterfly motif. The menuki are shakudo butterflies as well. Tsuka and saya are a hardwood and an antique sageo is attached. The blade is ubu, mumei with an extremely thick kasane of 13mm. The hamon is suguha-based with small activities. The hamon becomes very thin in the lower third by remains intact. The blade has NTHK kanteisho to koto Bizen Osafune Norimitsu (Muromachi period).

Beautiful blade Ray!

Just looking at the thickness near the machi, would this tanto qualify as a yoroi-doshi? Seems thick enough.

Thank you Chris, and yes as mentioned in the title I do consider this to be a yoroidoshi tanto. Any other questions, please just let me know. 

 

Best regards, 

Ray
