I have read and accept the
Kanesada is the representative swordsmith of the Mino tradition and worked in Muromachi era, that is the late koto period. Especially the second generation of Kanesada are very well thought of and considered one of the most the important smiths in history. Kanesada II is better known by the nickname "Nosada" because in the middle of his career he changed his signature style. Originally, he signed the "sada" character in grass script so that it resembles the character "no".
This Izuminokami Kanesada Komontsuka Koshirae features the Komon patterned tsuka cord that is made of selected soft leather. The Komon means "fine pattern" with a small, repeated pattern and often used for the Samurai warlord's Kamishimo and Hakama wears during the Edo era and this cherry blossom pattern represents brevity of life. The Kanesada's famous Hamon has been beautifully reproduced on the extra wide zinc/alluminum alloy blade. For the fitting ornaments, the Sakura Karakusa(cherry blossoms and tendrils) themes are featured on Fuchi/Kashira and coiling dragons on Menuki. Abalone-shaped iron Tsuba adds more beauty.
