A real Japanese Sword with an insane Choji Gunome Midare Hamon from Isshinsai Munehira including NBTHK Tokubetsu Hozon Token Papers.
Isshinsai Munehira Katana
This unique genuine Japanese sword from Isshinsai Munehira comes from the late Edo period and was worn by the real Samurai just before the Meiji restoration (or Meiji ishin). Chances are this sword was used by the Samurai Warriors during bloody rebellions. After this period, power returned to the Emperor instead of the Samurai when the Tokugawa Shogunate resigned from its duties.
This authentic Japanese Katana with beautiful appearance comes from a period when the power was still with the real Samurai and it takes little effort to imagine this when you see it in real life with its unique vibrant blade.
The Japanese swordsmith Isshinsai Munehira comes from the Bizen school and lived first in the Ise prefecture and later in Edo. The sword masters of the long Bizen tradition of Isshinsai Munehira are Koyama Munetsugu and his brother Koyama Munehira. The Bizen swords are also mainly known for the creativity in the sword blade with their beautiful hamon or hardening line. In the old and new Japan, the swordsmiths are real artists who worked in an extremely traditional way.
The Mei or signature is Isshinsai Munehira Meiji 2Nen 8 Gatsuhi.
This Japanese sword with a blade of tamahagane is still in excellent condition. A rather deep torii-sori or curvature of the sword blade for the Shin-Shinto period. An unshortened or ubu pliers which are of course still in original condition. A powerfully broad and robust Japanese katana in hamaguri style, with a thick Kasane and a Hamaguri-ha, the cross-section is shaped like a mussel with lots of niku (meat). A very fine hada in ko-itame in ji-nie with much life or hataraki like sunagashi and fine kinsuji. The reason why I am personally a fan of the Bizen tradition is the characteristic flowing choji gunome and midare hamon, which you never tire of in my opinion. The kissaki is chu with a midare komi boshi. A very powerful jigane or steel and healthy blade.
The suguta is shinogi zukuri with 1 mekugi-ana with a fine yasurime or filing patterns characteristic of each individual swordsmith. The may or inscription has been carefully applied and this implies that the blacksmith was satisfied with his work.
