MUKANSA Kanekuni Ogawa (son) Katana - Toranba

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!
I hope everyone is doing well.
I once again have another Shinsakuto for Sale.
This time its a real treat.
Here is a Mukansa Swordsmith Kanekuni Ogawa (son) - Ogawa Mitsutoshi
This is Signature works of his - he is known for making Sukehiro utsushimono and for creating the real Sakabato from Ruronin Kenshin.
For those who don't know, Sukehiro was the pioneer of this magnificent Toranba (Surging Waves) Hamon. Is it not the most magnificent hamon you've ever seen?
There are currently only Kanekuni Ogawa and So Masachika who are focused on creating modern Sukehiro Utsushimono. And if you ask me, Kanekuni Ogawa is superior.
The blade specifications are
Blade Length: 72.1cm
Sori: 1.9cm
Motohaba: 3.47cm
Width at the Kissaki: 2.72cm
Kasane: 0.67cm
Saki-Kasane: 0.44cm
Kissaki length: 4.45cm
The blade was made in Heisei 12 - 1999.
There are no flaws on this blade. The Jigane and Hamon are spectacular. I have attached a few videos to try and capture it for you.
The Blade comes with a Modern Koshirae with Modern fittings and a Shirasaya. No Tsunagi.
Please feel free to PM for more pics or more information.
Asking price 18,500.00 AUD / 12,000.00 USD

Here is a video of him featured on Touken World Youtube.
I have attached a few pictures of his signature works as well as his Bio page from the various different books I have that feature him and his works. Please enjoy.
