Tenka Fubu Katana
The nation under one sword
Dragon King pays homage to the renowned military
leader, Oda Nobunaga of the Sengoku period in the Tenka
Fubu Katana which was his motto â€œthe nation under one
sword.â€ Powerful, ruthless and audacious the Tenka Fubu
Katana possesses all the elements that Oda Nobunaga was
known for during his rule in medieval Japan.
Most prominent on the tsuba (guard) features the
kabuto of Oda Nobunaga and on the fuchi-kashira (pommel)
the kabuto of his most bitter rival, Takeda Shingen.
The fuchi (collar) bears a war fan and battle flag to
commemorate his victory in 1560 at Dengakuhazama where
he raised his battle flags over the rise of a hill to
fool Imagawa's forces to think he was encamped there,
while he and a handful of men snuck around for a sneak
attack which afterward changed the course of Japanâ€™s
Oda Nobunagaâ€™s passion for warfare to bring about a
unified Japan was only matched by his love for poetry
and tea ceremony which are memorialized by the silver
menuki (handle ornaments). The red lacquered saya holds
the true symbol of Oda Nobunagaâ€™s power, a 28 Â½â€ forged
steel blade, and symbolizes the blood that was shed to
achieve his ambitions. The saya is adorned with a
buffalo horn kurikata (knob) and kojiri (cap) and brown
and gold sageo (cord) which unifies the piece to the
brown tsuka-ito (handle wrap) over white same (ray
A must have for collectors but very much a functional
piece, one especially built well enough that Oda
Nobunaga himslef would be proud to carry.
