Special feature: Tamba Kanenobu made this blade tracing Rai Kunitoshi works. Tamba Kanenobu, also known as Tamba Seigo, is a great swordsmith who is really good at blade-carving. He won 8 prizes. He was a pupil of his own father Tamba Kanenobu. This blade has great Jigane, beautiful Hamon, and nice polish.

From Aoi Art: Most of Rai Kunitoshi works that we see today are thin because they are very old and had been polished again and again. But we can imagine what they could have been when they were just made. This work has Niedeki Suguha with lots of Koashi with beautiful Jigane and old-fashioned Kissaki: it turns down in a small circle and ends with Hakikake.
