An interesting Edo and Meiji woodblock-print of ‘New Blades.’ This collection is the stamping of amateur warriors’ blades and polishers throughout the Edo period and is equivalent to the sword of the Meiji era and later called “modern sword.”. It follows up on the older collections of blade writings which summarized the accumulated knowledge of amateur warriors’ blades and polishers throughout the Muromachi period. After the battle of Sekigahara in Keicho 4 (AD 1599), the Tokugawa shogunate opened and war ended, demand and production methods for swords changed, and later works came to be called “new swords.” This ‘New Blades’ book includes information on large and small swords, knives, tools for forgings, polishing, and repairing, as well as stamps of sword makers and the illustrious line patterns between the edge and spine called the Hamon.

 

This rare 1721 edition is written in a column handwritten format with furigana usage for easier reading. This edition contains excellent illustrations of different blades throughout!
