Two new blades in the gallery today

I posted two new blades in the gallery today: a tachi in shirasay with sayagaki by the mukansa smith, Yoshindo Yoshikazu, and a shinshinto katana by Sanjo Kokaji Munetsugu. The tachi is a magnificent work by Yoshikazu in the Ichimonji tradition with a fine ko itame kitae with profuse ji nie and the choji hamon flowing into the boshi. The Munetsugu katana is also well forged with a tight ko itame forged in the Mino tradition with a farily regular gunome hamon with the peaks trending toward the hamachi on one side and toward the kissaki in the other side. The Munetsugu is in a nice late Edo koshirae.
