Yari in Hira-Sankaku-zukuri
blade length (including the neck) 33.0cm, width 3.8cm, thickness
at the neck 1.3cm
The steel is large wood grain layer pattern with a little rough grain on
the obverse side. Some rough layer or open layer appears.
Compact grain and dense steel particles on the reverse
The hamon pattern is gunome, notare and some small tobiyaki
on the obverse side. The temper line is made of mild konie particles. There
are appearances come from the relation between the temper line and the
layer, such as sunagashi and kinsuji.
The hamon on the reverse side is made of konie, nie,
and some ara-nie. The gunome pattern runs irregularly combining tobiyaki
and yubashiri. There is a different colour on the neck that shows the phases
of tempering effect. It is the same effect to mizukage.
By the way, it is difficult to take good pictures of this
blade, because the shape is complicated. Then, I will try to make an oshigata
to help introducing the hamon.
The Sanskrit letter on the neck is "Aizen-Myo'O".
The buddha is a symbol of love, but it is not a sweet love. The buddha
looks like a fire of love.
In rough saying, the obverse side shows effects of layer.
The reverse side shows effects of tempering.
The habaki is gold foiled on silver.
The shirasaya and the bag.
