Shitahara Katana with NBTHK Hozon Certificate

Japanese Antique Samurai Katana.

Kirisuke mei signed ASATSUYU (朝棎) Morning dew.

A very nice well forged blade with beautiful grain, mounted in nice koshirae. Great set of signed fuchi kashira of peacocks, iron sukashi tsuba.
 

The term Asatsuyu can also be read as Ch˘ro. Morning dew has been associated with ephemerality/transcience (of every life) since oldest times in Japan as it vanishes so quickly when the sun comes out.
