Museum quality Tanto signed Nobukuni

An incredible addition to our collection, a museum grade Tanto signed Nobukuni with an original mid to late Muromachi period Dragon Horimono. The elaborate horimono is chiseled right through to the other side to give the dragon a lively feel. Likely the work of 4th generation Nobukuni who himself was a skilled Horimono carver, it is rare to see such early works with original horimono as they were often added at a later point in time. Thick enough to still be considered a Yoroi-doshi (armor piercer) it still has a generous amount of Niku. Such a superb blade is perfectly matched in this stunning Edo period Koshirae of the highest quality, made from silver with an incredible amount of detail. What is even more rare are the original Kozuka and Kogai that have not been lost.
