    Signature: Mumei. Traces of red lacquer attribution on tang. Attributed to Tsumbo Nagatsuna of the Tadatsuna School by NTHK.
    Year Made: Shinto late 1600s

    Forging Pattern: Itame Mokume
    Tempering Pattern:  Midare Choji
    Dimensions:   Nagasa:  69.8cm, Nakago:  20cm, Mihaba:  28.5mm, Sakihaba:  19mm, Kasane:  7mm
    Mountings:  Original shirasaya. The original habaki is copper with shakudo mune and ha.
    Overall Condition:  Excellent. Polished with NTHK papers. Saya has some dents from storage.
    Nagatsuna was one of the top students of Tadatsuna, the founder of the Osaka Shinto Tadatsuna school.
    Nagastuna swords are rated as wazamon (extremely sharp), and a Jo-saku level shinto smith.

    “This sword reminds me Koto Yamashiro, with abundant activity in the choji hamon with abundant sunagashi. The deep lustrous hada looks like a swirling wet pool of black blue water. There is abundant ji-nie, chikei and areas of muneyaki. I feel that the attribution to Nagatsuna is conservative.”

  • ฿0.68250

    Signature:  Mumei
    Year Made:  Late Kamakura/Early Nambokucho

    Forging Pattern:  Itame with Shirake Utsuri
    Tempering Pattern:  Midare
    Dimensions:   Nagasa:   30″, Nakago: 8″, Mihaba: 1 3/16″, Sakihaba: 13/16″, Kasane: 1/4:, Sori: 7/8″ 
    Mountings:  The saya is solid and has a nice flat back kanshitsu lacquer finish.  The tsuka is relatively new with nice same and tight ito.  Fuchikashira are iron but do not match.  The kashira is plain with parallel lines.  The menuki are gold plated horses.  The tsuba is strong old iron and the habaki is a single piece copper in very good condition.
    Overall Condition:  The blade has a large forging/grain opening which may blister out on one side and very minor grain opening and blister on the other side.
    These two kizu are just forward of the habaki.
    There are a couple of other forging openings on one side in the shinogi ji.  These kizu may disappear in polishing and this sword deserves a good polish.
    There are a few very small chips in the edge that will easily disappear with a good polish as they are about a 1/64″ deep.
