From Aoi Art : Many of the double-edged works(moroba) were made in Bizen during
the Muromachi period, but it is thought that the fashion also influenced the paddy field.
At first glance, the wonderful clear and well-grained jigane iron looks like a popular
Bizen sword. If you look closely at the named part of the Nakago it may be filled with red
lacquer, but it is unknown. In any case, it is a wonderful work of Jigane.
The Kashira is a vermilion-painted chopped pod. Kurikata, is the same Syakudo plate. It
has a gorgeous atmosphere with works with patterns on the ground.
