This is the first piece I made for a customer.
It was modeled on a famous sword from the Kamakura period (1185-1333) called "Namazuo Toushirou," and the client wanted it to be a mirror of his mind.
It is a special shape of wakizashi called "kanmuri-otoshi" and it takes a lot of skill to make this shape beautiful.
The beautiful hamon of Suguha, with some changes and utsuri.
This is a carving called naginatabi.
The owner still sends me photos from time to time.
I am very happy to know that he cares for this work as if it were his own child.
