Hiromitsu tanto on eBay

Recommended Posts

Currently a Hiromitsu tanto is for auction on eBay. Obviously it’s Gimei but a good learning opportunity. The temper looks hitatsura but pattern looks nothing like Hiromitsu. Could be late soshu but more likely seki, mino or Shimada. Patterns look crescent shaped and mashed together. The nakago has the fish belly shape common in soshu but also in Shimada and other schools up thru the Muromachi. What do you guys think.

The sellers name on eBay is bleeding_gums

he has a few interesting pieces on auction he states from a large liquidation from a large collection. The Hiromitsu hitatsura temper looks too defined and exaggerated like tobiyaki instead of subdued or subtle like Hiromitsu
