From Aoi Art: This sword is oo Suriage Mumei and attributed as Tadakuni. If the blade is original shape like this Hamon, the sword must be passed Juyo Token.
Masahiro and Tadakuni both, which I have the most praise for in Shinto sword makers.
It shows the workmanship that corresponds to the masterpiece sword of the sword.
Reminds me of a large-scale cumulonimbus floating in a white cloud in the deep blue sky
over the mountains on the right, heading from Saga to Nagasaki going through by train.
The beautiful work of Hizen sword that made the figure look like a sword is full of variety,
and I was impressed that it was finished up to this point.
It will be done. It is regrettable that it was unnamed, but at first glance it is a work that will
be asserted as Tadakuni and Masahiro. The shape is also perfect for Iai sword.
I am confident that it is the highest quality product that I would like to recommend.
