Zenjo Yoshikado Katana (fss-644)

Zenjo Yoshikado - (Mino Province) kata, mumei, Ka-Ei Period (1848-1854) - Kai Gunto Fittings, polished in 2005, NTHK papers 2006,This well made sword comes in an original set of naval mounts and is in a fine polish.  The work on this sword is very elegant.  In the Togare ba hamon you can make out tsunagashi and kinsuji with a well defined habuchi and some ko-nie to frost the top.  The hada is well forged and in good shape for such a beautiful old sword with longish itame running here and there entwined with itame and mokume. Ji-nie appears.  The style is that of shinogi-zukuri . The tang is suriage and the blade length is approx.. 26 5/16” and mumei and looks to be a much older sword. Hakikake appears in the boshi and the sword has an old Mino feel to it.

There is bohi on both sides of the blade which adds to its balance and overall feel.
