Tokubetsu Hozon Hasebe tanto in shirasaya with Tanobe-sensei sayagaki

Recommended Posts

Offering a very healthy hirazukuri tanto from the famed Hasebe school, founded by Hasebe Kunishige. This is a less common deki for the group, who are often known for very active hitatsura hamon, but sometimes did a quieter execution like this piece. The blade has a very beautiful and healthy jitetsu, and a suguha-based midare hamon with deep nie activity. This sword has current NBTHK Tokubetsu Hozon kanteisho and Tanobe-sensei thoughts are contained in the sayagaki below.

Hasebe from Yamashiro Province
Blade length 28.7 cm
Written by Tanzan [Tanobe Michihiro] in January of the year of the hare of this era (2023)+ monogram.
This blade has an ubu-nakago, which prominently tapers towards its tip, a thin kasane, and a kitae in a standing-out itame that is mixed towards the ha with nagare. It is hardened in a suguha in ko- nie-deki with a roundish boshi, whereupon we recognize that we have here a masterwork of the type of calmer Hasebe interpretations that can be occasionally seen.
