The original design of this replica sword was forged by MITSUTASA, who was known as one of the greatest swordsmiths, living during Kamakura period (1185 AC-1333 AC).
It is said that the sword was used by the famous warlord 伊達政宗(Masamune Date) to punish one of his servants. The sword was so sharp that not only the servant but also the candle table made of copper where he hid was cut in half.
The word “Shokudai” means candle table and Kiri means “cut.”
