[ Highlight ]
The Houju was a school of swordsmiths in Oshu, from the first generation around the end of the Kamakura period to the Muromachi period.There are various theories as to where the swords were made, including Hiraizumi, Tamatsukuri-gun, Toda-gun and Dewa province. Because of its good name, the Muromachi Shogun's family had a priest of the Tendai sect pray for a Hoju-no-saku as a guardian sword and place it beside the mother during childbirth. This work is in the form of a naginata reworked as a wakizashi. The natural curve of the blade, which corresponds to the loosely forged skin of the large itame, has been well nie.This is a very tasty piece of work, which changes constantly with the sunagashi.

[ Conditions ] There are some rough spots on the jigane. There is some polishing loss.
