Mishina Munetsugu Katana(fss-915)

Misina Tajima Kami Munetsugu is a student of Mishina Kanemichi and made swords at Settsu province.  He worked in the 1700’s.  This particular sword is well made and has a very elegant shape.  The sword has carved Bo-hi and is also very long at 29″. The hamon is a midare sulu-ha mix. A very interesting feature of this katana is the Aysugi hada.  Generally speaking Gassan Sadakazu and Sadayoshi we’re working diligently at researching and restoring the Ayasugi hada of the Gassan school.  After their success, they kept producing Ayasugi hada as a Gassan school’s top secret for a long period of time.  This particular sword shows a well-made Ayasugi hada.  You will find this hada in other swords he made. So this is a good example of other schools that actually did this type of hada also. One might confuse this blade for a Gassan school sword. 

This sword has a very good balance and the curvature is deep.  It can be used as a high end Iaido training sword.   It is a fine quality antique katana.  It comes in good mounts and overall the fittings are very good quality.  The sword recently received a 70 point Kantei-sho attribution from the NTHK. It attest to the authenticity of the maker, age and quality.  The papers will be mailed to the new owner the moment I have them in hand.
