Masamune - His Work, his Fame and his Legacy (PB)
Lulu.com, 20 mar 2015 - 182 pagine
It is often said that Masamune was the greatest Japanese swordsmith of all times From a mere technical point of view, it is next to impossible to say if there was one "greatest" swordsmith as the country brought forth so many great master smiths. Each of these masters had a personal approach in producing a perfect sword, and within these elite circles we are not only referring to technical perfection but also to aesthetical considerations. So putting aside the claim to name a "greatest," we can at least say for sure that Masamune is by far the most famous swordsmith of Japan. The aim of this publication is to contribute to the understanding and appreciation of this great master, that is to say by not only presenting his works but also by providing a newly researched and detailed historic overview of his life and the circumstances in the establishment of a new forging tradition. This publication introduces more than 50 of his meibutsu (noted swords). PLEASE SEE LULU.COM FOR THE HARDCOVER COLOR DELUXE EDITION.
