HESHIKIRI HASEBE is the name of the sword forged during NANBOKUCHO period(1336-1392 A.D.). The original sword of this design is registered as a national treasure. It was used by one of the most famous warlords, ODA NOBUNAGA and then handed down to HIDEYOSHI TOYOTOMI, and eventually, NAGAMASA KURODA took over this sword.
The origin of the name of the sword “HESHIKIRI HASEBE” is quite impressive.
One day, ODA NOBUNAGA found one of his servants making a terrible mistake. And then ODA got angry and started to chase him to make a punishment, but the servant managed to escape and hide in a cupboard. ODA wanted to swing his sword to kill this servant but he couldn’t because space was insufficient. Instead, he merely pushed his sword on the cupboard to cut. Surprisingly enough, he was able to cut the cupboard and his servant’s body in half.
This anecdote shows us how sharp his sword was. In Japanese push, cutting is called Heshikiri. The name of the sword is coming from this incident and Hasebe is the name of the swordsmith.
