This sword was made by “Mihara-jū Masatoshi” (三原住正利). It needs restoration but the mihara group is a classic sword school. They come from the yamato tradition and made very good quality swords. This group comes from the Bingo province and does back to the Sochu era 1324-1313. This sword is from the koto era around 1400’s we feel. It is a solid blade that has no flaws and should polish out very well if done by a qualified sword polisher. The mounts are original and very old also at least from the 1500’s-1600’s. We feel its a great sword to save and bring back to life.
