[ Highlight ] The Tegai school of swordsmiths was founded by Kanenaga in the Kamakura period (1185-1333) and lived near the Tegaimon gate of Todaiji temple. It continued to flourish until the Muromachi period (1333-1573). This work is thought to be by the Tegai school of the Muromachi period. The blade is characterized by its wide width, its fine straight blade with a small nie, its curved shape, and its boushi with a hakikake tip. Among the Yamato-den, it is appraised as a tegai-school's sword. It is stored in the uchi-gatana-koshirae (e.g. Kuro-ro-iro-nuri) with design of lion menuki and desing of peony fuchigashira.

[ Conditions ] There is some minor rust and fraying and a very small blade spill, but it can be preserved and appreciated in its present condition.
