Our guest from Germany purchased IZUMINO KAMI KANESADA sword!
Hello, another blog post from Samurai Museum. Today, we would like to introduce why our guest decided to purchase a specific design of a Japanese replica sword.
Our guest from Germany in the picture decided to buy Izumino Kami Kanesada model sword. She likes the history behind the sword and its tradtional design.
This replica sword is based on a famous sword used by TOSHIZOU Hizikata, who lived at the end of Edo Period working as a main member of SHINSENGUMI. He also participated in Boshin war, where Tokugawa samurai force and Meiji Emperor force fought against each other. He was always loyal to Shogun while some of his close people were changing their mind.
