This is one very beautiful and meaningful Samurai sword.

The Jumyo (寿命) school has its origins from Yamato (Nara prefecture) and moved to Mino province (Gifu prefecture) in the Kamakura period (1185-1333). The tradition continued for centuries, right up until the end of the Edo period in 1868.
Their unique name, Jumyo, means life span or longevity. As it’s meaning is so hopeful, their swords were prized as celebrated gifts to Daimyo (great) families amongst the Samurai society.
The classic black mountings or ‘hon-koshirae’ that make up this splendid piece are representative of what a Samurai would be seen at a formal occasion.
All pieces of the koshirae are in wonderful condition and compliment this long katana’s elegant wavy hamon (temper line) marvelously.
