<Swordsmith and sword feature>
We have converted this Mumei(no signature) Shinshinto into a very light, well balanced Iaito by fitting a new Tsuka with a classy Kanagu set(worth over 100,000yen).
Tightly fitted and adjusted by Giheiya, it is a very reasonable Iai Shinken for practitioners.

It has an ordinary blade weight and a width, Shinogi-zukuri, Iori-mune. The curve is Toriizori style and the blade top is Nakamine.
There are Katachiri Bohi(thick groove which extends to shinogi,leaves flat space only on Mune side) on both side of the blade.

<Hada - Forging>
The jihada (body of the sword) is a tightly forged Mokume (burl wood grain) and coarse Jinie(darkish crystal)granule attaches on the surface.

<Hamon - Temper patterns>
The Hamon is Notare base Gunome with brilliant nie white crystals attaches abundantly on the cutting edge(Nie-deki).
Boshi- temper line of the tip follows Hamon then turns back to a gentle curl called Komaru.

The Tang is Ubu(original) and has Sujichigai file marks. Nakago end is Kurijiri shape.
