Mitokoromono & Koshirae



Even realizing that boxed mitokoromono are more easily sold, I couldn't bring myself to undo a good koshirae.  This is a true mitokoromono, made to be so, not the too often seen married sets.  The tsuba didn't match, and fell off before I acquired the wakizashi koshirae.    I suspect that the five short arrows may also be a mon.  Great condition, good work, and looking for a new home.                                                                                                      $3,500
