    Koto Soshu Fuyuhiro Katana in Gunto Koshirae

    Soshu Fuyuhiro Katana in Gunto Koshirae. Dated around 1490-1530

    Nagasa: 61.2cm

    Sori: 2cm

    Nakago: Ubu, signed Fuyuhiro

    Hada: Itame

    Hamon: O-midare


    This is a old Koto katana stored in Gunto koshirae. The blade has a very unique suguta and is signed "Fuyuhiro". There were 10 generations bearing the name Fuyuhiro working in the Soshu tradition. This looks like a Sue-Soshu work to me. This I'm not sure of the exact generation but I believe this generation of Fuyuhiro was active in the Odawara Soshu School.

    The blade has some rust and pitting in areas. Would greatly benefit from a polish is one was so inclined.

    The Koshirae is in fairly good condition. The tsuba and tsuka are in great shape. The says has a dent and some minor damage. Overall not too bad.

    This sword is priced at $2,500 USD plus shipping.

    Feel free to contact me any time for further information or a shipping quote to your area.
