Miyamoto-Kanenori who studied from the Bizen-Sukekane school was born in Tempo-gan-nan in 1830. He intended to be a sword smith from a young age. He enjoys "Notono-kami" from Shogunate. This blade was made on year 1866 when he was 36 years old just before Meiji renovation. Background just before historical renovation, the blade is long, rather heavier, aggressive shape with long tip called "Ou-kissaki". Lately his blades are frequently equipped with Gunto (Army mounting) and he became a living national treasure [Teishitsu Gigeiin] in the 39th year of Meiji (A.D.1907). He is a superior rank in Shin-shinto period. Passed away in 1926, aged 97 years. This blade tachi has been completed from an elaborate polish and no significant flaw and possible best condition. The polisher purposely remains an original width of base, leaving tiny tip off at hamachi and also remains a few darkish dots that came from slight rust to keep an original mass of steel material under the habaki collar.
Copper habaki collar, Shira-saya plain wood mounting.
