Yanagawa Ushoshin

Ushoshin was a Betsuki rated smith based in Tokyo. This sword has a gonome hamon with a very bright nioi-guchi. Hada is a very tight ko-itame. It is mounted in one of the very best condition shin-gunto koshirae I have handled. Everything including the tsukamaki is in almost perfect condition. There is a ka-mon on the kabuto-gane. A beautiful example throughout.
