Other Info and Full Description


Etchu no Kami Masatoshi Katana in good polish.  Papered by NBTHK, Tokubetsu Hozon.  Masatoshi was the youngest son of Kanemichi, the founder of the Mishina School in Mino.  There were four generations that signed Etchu no Kami Masatoshi.  At some point the second generation added a 16 petal chrysanthemum to the tang above his signature, which was continued through the later generations.  This example does not have the chrysanthemum, placing it as either first generation or early second.  Comes in a shirasaya with a gold-foil habaki and includes a very nice koshirae with brass fuchi and kashira, black same-gawa, green tsuks-ito, and black lacquered saya.  There are two mon on the Koshirae, I believe they are Ashikaga and Toyotomi, but I could be wrong.


It's too hard to keep up with all the international shipping rules and regulations, so I'll only ship within the USA.  Price includes shipping and insurance.


Thanks for looking.
