A masterpiece by the famous Tadatsuna
Mei (signature) Awataguchi Omi kami Tadatsuna.
His real name was Asai Mandayu.
Tadatsuna was a master blacksmith in the middle of the Edo period and he even surpassed his father.
The quality of his blades are phenomenal. He especially has a preference for making a Horimono (an engraving) in the blade.
Similarly with this sword. The details and Kanji are almost magical.
Tadatsuna is one of the best of his generation, an Osaka Shinto master.
The blade has a length of (Nagasa) 72.4 cm.
Curvature (sori): 0.75 cm
Weight: 750 g
The blade is in perfect condition and comes together with an old shirasaya.
Including Japanese registration papers.
The blade is in perfect condition and has no flaws.
A very rare and great blade of the first order.
We have tried to verify the signature as good as possible, the signature on the sword is not verified because there is no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification paper) present with the sword.
To be reasonably sure about the maker of a specific sword, you have to apply the sword for shinsa (inspection) at one of the most important Japanese sword study groups (NBTHK or NTHK). These organisations will judge the sword and draw up documents (origami) describing the authenticity and/or historic value of the sword.
