Yamashiro Kami Fujiwara Nobutoshi
This unique and breathtaking katana by Yamashiro Kami Fujiwara Nobutoshi with the honorific of Harima No Daijo lived in the Tenna period. Tenna was a period after Enpo and before Jōkyō (September 1681 to 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.
A real authentic Japanese sword with a lot of history and given the beautiful appearance it does not take much effort to imagine a Samurai with this beautiful sword.
The Japanese swordsmith Yamashiro Kami Fujiwara Nobutoshi comes from the Mishina school, he lived in Heianjô. The mishina is descended 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. Due to his success, he was given the title Kami and was given permission to use it in his signature of May.
The Mei or signature is Yamashiro (prefecture) Kami (honorary title) Fujiwara (clan) Nobutoshi (name). He also often signed with a mon/chrysanthemum on the nakago.
It remains a miracle that despite its age this sword is in excellent condition. The blade forged from tamahagane has a fairly deep sori and a beautiful connecting kissaki that is on the longer side. An ubu nakago or tang that has not been shortened and is therefore still in the condition as it was forged. Forged tamagagane with a refined hada in ko-itame in ji-nie. Much life in the leaf with chikei and hadame. Chikei arises from the ji-nie and its particles that appear on the hardened steel. By repeatedly heating, folding and hammering the steel to expel any impurities and air bubbles that could affect the strength of the finished blade, you will get the very clear hadame visible. A suguha hamon that turns into a gunome midare and round bo-shi. The jigane is very powerful and comes out nicely.
The suguta is shinogi zukuri with a kengyo nakago or tang with 1 mekugi-ana. The inscription is carefully applied and provided with yasurime or file patterns. This implies that the blacksmith was satisfied with his work and indicates that it did not belong to mass production.
Of course, this samurai sword comes with a matching koshirae. The black rorio saya (sheath) with leading red stripes make this a very attractive Japanese katana that you won't find a second of.
The tsuba is a Dote-Mimi design and since it is still a tsuba in early Edo, it doesn't look too flashy. You can also see a mei or signature on the tsuba. The handle is wrapped in Katate maki with a family of mon in shakudo on the menuki. The sober higo style fuchi and kashira have a floral theme, but contrast nicely with the leather ito on real rayskin.
