MITSUMORI WORKED DURING THE PERIOD OF KO-AN (1278). HE HAILED FROM THE "KAMAKURA HATAKEDA" SCHOOL, FOUNDED BY "MORICHIKA" IN APPROXIMATELY KEN-EI PERIOD 1206 AD. HE WAS OF THE "FUKUOKA ICHIMONJI GROUP". "MORIIYE", SUCCEEDED HIS GRANDFATHER, AND SENSEI "MORICHIKA", AND EVEN SIGNED A BLADE "MORICHIKA MAGO MORIIYE" (STUDENT OF THE FOUNDER, MORICHIKA)! "MITSUMORI", WAS HIS FOREMOST STUDENT, AND SPENT THE MAJORITY OF HIS CAREER AS THE CHIEF ASSISTANT TO "MORIIYE" WHO'S BLADES WERE IN HIGH DEMAND. DUE TO THIS FACT, SIGNED BLADES BY "MITSUMORI" ARE SELDOM SEEN. WHEN EXAMINING "MU-MEI" (UNSIGNED) BLADES BY THESE MAKERS, THERE WORK IS DIFFICULT TO DISTINGUISH. MITSUMORI'S WORKS ARE MAINLY TACHI, TANTO, AND COMPANION (EARLY TERM FOR WAKIZASHI) SWORDS WITH STRONG, DISCERNIBLE CHARACTERISTICS RELATING TO THE ICHIMONJI SCHOOL. THIS PARTICULAR BLADE WAS ONCE OWNED BY THE SAKAKE DAIMYO, WITH SAYAGAKI ON ITS 200 + YEAR OLD SHIRASAYA, ATTRIBUTING IT TO THE ICHIMONJI SCHOOL.

OVER 200 YEARS AGO, IT WAS JUDGED AS "ICHIMONJI". AGAIN, 5 YEARS AGO IT WAS JUDGED AS "ICHIMONJI", BY THE "NBTHK" TOKUBETSU HOZON SHINSA. ON THE STRENGTH OF THESE TWO EVALUATIONS, WE PLACED IT FOR JUYO. THE SHINZA THOUGHT IT LOOKED A BIT MORE LIKE "MITSUMORI" ( HIS "SAKA CHOJI ) SLANTS A BIT MORE, AND MADE IT JUYO MITSUMORI. IF THE JUYO SHINZA WOULD CALL IT ICHIMONJI IT WOULD BE NEARLY DOUBLE OUR ASKING PRICE!
