Kurihara Nobuhide - The Last Master Sword Smith

Kurihara Nobuhide - The Last Master Sword Smith

ByNoboru Toyama

Kurihara Nobuhide is one of the greatest Japanese master sword smiths from the end of the Samurai Period. Although his fame is sometimes overshadowed by his teacher - a legendary smith - Yamaura Kiyomaro, the swords Nobuhide made for Meiji Emperor and the Holly Mirror of the Yasukuni Shrine are the proof of the highest level of sword making of the period. This book contains over 40 Nobuhide's masterpieces and also several Holly Mirrors from his local shrines and Kiyomaro School's works. Noboru Toyama lives in Sanjo/Niigata - Nobuhide's homeland. He is also the best researcher of Kurihara Nobuhide's work in Japan.
