Tachi mei


Recommended Posts

Jû means inhabitant. Now why it is here on your sword, I can’t tell you not being the smith. I checked on Markus’book with no success. Only shinsa can tell you if the mei is authentic or not, but my vision is a bit blurred at the time being

I think Nicholas that the mei is genuine. Smiths’mei are not necessarily all listed, that’s why shinsa is the best solution. If good, I would place it early Muromachi (Oei). Don’t worry for my eye, just an eyelid surgery which makes you look like a boxer at the seven round.😄
