  • JAPANESE SWORD FUCHI - KASHIRA SIGNED BENKEI & YOSHITSUNE

    $475.00
    This diminutive tanto size set appears to have been mounted on a yoroi -doshi.  Shishiai-bori and
    takabori in iroe are skillfully incorporated to depict three figures and a bridge.  The figures are
    Minamoto Benkei & Yoshitsune as they cross a bridge on their flight from Yoritomo,
    Yoshitsune’s brother turned antagonist, who might be the figure on the kashira. The work-
    manship is very much Hamano in style and quality. Widening of the nakago-ana accounts for the
    limited mei. The fuchi is signed : Naritsugu w/ kao  Condition: excellent w/some wear to the
    surface of  kashira.
