Product Description

"Dai-Sho" Samurai Swords c.1300

  • This pair of exemplary blades from the 1300's is known as a "Dai-Sho" or Big Little. These would only have been possessed by a high ranking Samurai.
  • They were handcrafted by the Bingo Mihara School a famed swordmaking school in Ko Mihara.
  • The markings on the blade indicate that the sharpness was tested by cutting a human head, a common practice in feudal Japan. This sword split a human skull in half. After this, the owner of the sword at the time got it engraved, “Splitting the Eyebrows” which rests on the tang in solid gold
  • Both blades were longer at one point but were later shortened due to the style of the Edo period
  • The sword mounts are from a later period, they are made from extremely high quality parts dating to the 1800’s.
  • Mounts are “Higo” styled because they’re from the region of Kumamoto in Southern Japan
  • Handles of these swords are made from doeskin and they have ray skin covered scabbards. Arrowheads on the fittings show the personality of the original Samurai owner
  • Both blades are certified as genuine from the 1300’s by the Japanese Sword Museum and include papers.
  • This set was previously owned by Mark Semos, a former Navy SEAL and current Writer/Producer at CBS’ TV Show SEAL Team
  • The two sword style is known as niten'ichi. One of its famous swordsmen is Musashi, who dueled several fighters during his early years. It is said he once faced a dozen men by himself. “To escape and fight off his opponents he was forced to draw his second sword and defend himself with a sword in each hand.” After killing his main attacker, he fled and this was the beginning of the niten'ichi sword style.
  • These swords have been personally inspected by "Pawn Stars" expert Mike Yamasaki, see him talk more about the Samurai Sword in the video above.
