2 Large and small sword guards, inlaid sword guard with bamboo design on iron (inscribed "Bushu ju Masamitsu").
3 Fuchi-gashira with scattered crest design (shakudo , unmarked, stone surface like pattern).
4 Menuki, dragon crawling design. Shakudo.
5 Design of deer, kozuka.

[ Highlight ]The large and small arrangement was made in the Edo period and is in good condition, with all metal fittings in place. This item is recommended for those who wish to display and enjoy it on a sword hanger. Both the large and small swords were registered in 1958 and are thought to have been in this large and small arrangement at least at this time. Both swords and wakizashi have straight blades with itame skin, and the boushi's sakis are haki-kake at the tip turned in komaru form. With various changes in surface patterns and the nie attached blade are surely worth appreciation.

[ Conditions ] The sword is old polished. The condition of the koshirae arrangements are excellnet.

[ Attachments ] Habaki (two-layer gold foiled, one-layer diamond-shaped crest silver), koshirae, bag of koshirae and NBTHK Tokubetsu kicho tosogu certificate (issued on 24 January 1960).
