Antique Japanese Sword Katana Unsigned Jyumyo with NBTHK Hozon Certificate

【Description】
The JYUMYO school has its origins from the YAMATO region(NARA Pref.) and moved to Mino province from the KAMAKURA period(1185-). The school kept forging excellent quality swords for centuries until the end of the EDO period. Their name JYUMYO means life span or longevity. As its meaning suggests, their swords were prized as celebrated gifts among DAIMYO, feudal lords, in the SAMURAI government(Bakufu).
This blade was forged by one of the Jyumyo, who worked for the Tokugawa shogunate in Owari province (Today’s Aichi prefecture) during the early Edo period.

This sword has a Hozon certificate issued by NBTHK. This authentication paper was only given to Japanese swords, worth preserving by Nihon Bijutsu Touken Hozon Kyokai(the Society for the Preservation of the Japan Art Sword).
