Dedication training was carried out at many shrines such as Owari Atsuta Jingu and Nara Gokoku Shrine, and in 2008, Japanese sword dedication training was carried out at Hitachi Kashima Jingu for the first time in about 1,300 years since the sword was made by Sabi Daimaro in 704. Do.

In the fall of 1984, he also played a major role in the 61st annual relocation of Ise Jingu Shrine and the service of Mito Tachi swords, and made a great effort to support the reconstruction of Mito Shrine in Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, which was severely damaged by the previous earthquake. He has served as a sacred treasure of straight swords, and most recently has one of the best sword-making techniques of modern Japanese sword masters, such as the restoration and training of large straight swords excavated from the Miyajitake Kofun in Fukuoka.

With a strong desire to reproduce old swords from the Heian and Kamakura eras, he has been engaged in research and training for many years, and has a wealth of knowledge and insights on national treasures, important cultural assets and similar swords, and swords and iron culture nationwide. , Wakizashi, Naginata, Ancient straight sword, etc., to create an accurate and beautiful sword figure.

Shohei Kudo, who is famous as a leading figure in reproducing old swords and also for training swords that cut iron. We have teamed up with Isao Machii, the owner of our shop, and are still working to make a true sword that is both practical and beautiful.

Kanbun in the early Edo period, when the appearance of shallow warpage was popular. Around this time, “Katana Dameshi”, which uses the corpse of a sinner to test the sword’s sharpness, was performed by leading swords of the time, such as Kaemon Yamano and Asaemon Yamada. Nagasone Kotetsu, who became popularly known as Toru’s stick warp, was also a swordsmith of this era, and the Kanbun new sword body was created by many people (trial), and is most suitable for both cutting and cutting. It can be said that it is a completed form.
Currently, people who like Iai want Japanese swords to warp like Japanese swords, and most people prefer six-quarter warp, but I affirm that the sword that is truly suitable for Iai and tameshigiri is the Kanbun new sword. You can do it.

This sword is one of the swords that was trained during the public training held at the Binko Residence in Fukushima Prefecture in 2015. It looks good as it warps, and it looks pale on the old-fashioned skin, and it is a work that skillfully baked the old-fashioned mutual nome cloves unique to Shohei, showing amazing changes and work in the blade. I am. It is a sword that has a lot of highlights, as it fits in well, shows a complicated landscape entwined with the ground iron in the blade, and has prominent sand streams and gold streaks.
