"Traces of lacquer over the years remain in the round forge of the mountain copper ground. A very rare example dating late nanbokucho to early Muromachi period. It is from the era when the sword is prized as a work of the Nanboku dynasty era and was used on the battle field with its basic appearance. If you look closely, you will notice the richness of its expression, such as the slightly hammered rim, the unfortunate chisel marks and the rubbed areas of the lacquer." (Haynes & Long)
