Mumei Den Ecchu Mitsuyuki Katana + NBTHK

An antique koto Katana with NBTHK Hozon from the Nanbokucho period (+/- 1387) with an appealing Koshirae and beautiful ko-itame hada with suguha and gunome midare hamon as a traditional sword could only be forged in ancient Japan.

In the Nanbokucho period, Japan was going through a tumultuous time as the imperial court was split into two sides (south and north). Many samurai were used in the many conflicts and longer swords were often used. That is also the reason that this sword was shortened later, as you see with the majority of swords from this period.

An antique Nihonto of the Echizen Rai school. Echizen-Rai was a group of swordsmiths in the late Nanbokucho period. The founder of Echizen-Rai was Chiyozuru Kuniyasu. From the NBTHK this Mumei sword has been assigned to Ecchu Mitsuyuki. This was a student of Rai Kuniyuki and son of Kuninaga. These smiths lived in Echizen.

Buy a true Japanese sword that really belonged to the samurai. This sword certainly went through many events before it came into my possession. A real antique sword from Tamahagane is still in excellent condition despite its age, this sword dates from 1387.

A nice deep sori as was usual at the time. A mumei tongs with suriage. The leaf feels particularly pleasant due to the Bo-Hi and Soe-Hi. The leaf is very lively with the Ko-Itame hada and many veins. The attractive suguha hamon in the base with in ko nie deki and notare and gunome midare parts. In the leaf you see sunagashi and kinsuji in the ha and influences from the Yamashiro and Soshu den schools.

The nakaga is equipped with 4 mekugi-ana by replacing the tsuka so that the balance of the sword still feels very good.

Koshirae

Still authentic koshirae from this period. Despite its age, the round iron tsuba with battle details is made with an eye for detail.

The fuchi and kashira show a Noh mask and tools that were commonly used at the time. These are all finished in copper, silver and gold details.

On the menuki you can see a bird with a branch engraved with gold color.

The graceful kashira in two colors and well-finished signed seppa clearly indicate that this sword has been expertly finished and has rightly obtained the NBTHK papers in its entirety.
