Kawachi no Kami Kunisuke II.dai

Also this extraordinary Katana has a Hozon NBTHK Tokyo and was forged by Kawachi no Kami Kunisuke (ni dai- second generation). Like his father, Kunisuke II was known for his high class blades. He continued the tradition of his father. This blade is a real piece of art and surprises the viewer always again with exciting details. The condition of the swords are just perfect even the blade was shortened. And the saya is just as nice. An extraordinary Katana from around 1650.
Kunisuke is ranked high class in Hawleys and Fujishiro.
