Kikumon Yamashiro Kami Fujiwara Nobutoshi Wakizashi + NBTHK Hozon

A flawless antique Japanese Wakizashi with itame hada and gunome midare hamon with a kikumon mei from Tenna period.

This Japanese sword has been awarded by the NBTHK to Yamashiro Kami Fujiwara Nobutoshi with the honorary title of Harima No Daijo lived in the Tenna period. Tenna was a period after Enpo and before Jōkyō (September 1681 through February 1684). The emperor was Reigen-tennō but real power lay with the Tokugawa shogunate and the country's 300 regional daimyos. A daimyo belonged to the samurai class and was a Japanese warlord.

The Japanese swordsmith Yamashiro Kami Fujiwara Nobutoshi comes from the Mishina school, he lived in Heianjô. The mishina sword school descends from Shoshu Masamune. Kanemichi founded the Mishina school in Mino province during the late Muromachi period. He moved to Yamashiro in the late Muromachi or early Shinto period. His blades were known for their extreme sharpness and quality and were rated as upper class. Because of his success, he was given the title Kami and allowed to use it in his signature or mei.

A unique wakizashi which is equipped with the kikumon mei. This kikumon or family coat of arms has been used by Japanese imperial families since the Kamakura period. The chrysanthemum was long ago used in China as a medicine for longevity and in this way it was brought to Japan in the Nara period (648-781).

The kikumon is a chrysanthemum pattern and was used as the family coat of arms of the emperor and the royal family in Japan, so it is also known as a noble pattern.

From the Kamakura period, the chrysanthemum coat of arms was given by the emperor as a reward to those warlords who made important contributions.

For a long time in Japan, the emperor was considered to be God and therefore it was an irreplaceable honor for samurais to receive the emperor's family coat of arms. The samurai then had this incorporated into the weapons.

For example, the chrysanthemum pattern has had a deep connection with samurai culture for centuries.

A blade made from tamahagane according to the Japanese sword tradition. The leaf has a ko-itame hada with many veins. This wakizashi has a graceful deep sori with a broad and thick blade and relatively longer kissaki. A nice color jigane or steel with lively gunome and midare hamon in nie deki. The modarekomi boshi makes it clear that we are dealing with a quality sword here.

An ubu nakago, in original condition with 1 mekugi ana. The Nakago is the tang of the Japanese sword and the swordsmiths have left the black rust on the tang so that it prevents red rust while the tang remains in the handle. You should never remove this rust because it is a good indicator for a Japanese sword specialist to estimate when the sword was forged.
