MOTOKANE   MOTOMUNE  
 - BUN-PO 1317 -     

CHIKAFUSA SHO-GEN: Twenty-four GOBAN - 4th month. SAKON SHOGEN.
        OSAFUNE JU. KO-ITAME. SUGUHA with ASHI and KO-MIDARE of
        KO-CHOJI BA in KO-NIE. KO-AN CHIKAFUSA follows with the 
        very dynamic ICHIMONJI YAKIBA patterns.

MOTOCHIKA SHO-GEN (f: CHIKAFUSA): Mid KAMAKURA style wide IKUBI-
        KISSAKI TACHI. Early work is a reserved KO-MIDARE of 
        KO-CHOJI BA where NIJUBA runs and YUBASHIRI rides in the
        steel. Later: Large pattern NIOI OBUSA CHOJI in a mix of
        OSAFUNE undulation with HATAKEDA full that shows KAWAZU.
        MIDARE-BOSHI with slight turnback. Large, open three-
        character MEI: MOTOCHIKA TSUKURU. Became EMA NYUDO in 
        KA-GEN 1303. Note: KO-BIZEN MEI are in thick strokes, 
        ICHIMONJI MOTOCHIKA are thin - of course, the YAKIBA will
        be starkly different.






























 
BUNKAZAI MOTOCHIKA

BUNKAZAI MOTOCHIKA
       NAGASA: 2.3 SHAKU                    MOTO-HABA: 9.2 BU
         SORI: 7 BU                         SAKI-HABA: 6.6 BU
       NAKAGO: 6.2 SUN

        SHINOGI-TSUKURI, IHORI-MUNE, FUNBARI TACHI. Width carries
        the upper to support a round CHU-KISSAKI. MIDARE-UTSURI
        drapes ITAME HADA. This sword possesses one of the most
        powerful ICHIMONJI YAKIBA in existence. MONOUCHI is 
        reminiscent of BITCHU's NIOI inner-pattern where a high 
        wall is shattered by strafe and fracture. SUNAGASHI
        carves dimension for OBUSA and KAWAZU while ASHI cuts 
        gaps and ravines. Pointed CHOJI and leaning slabs are 
displaced in the mid with the easy dominance of         looping and malleable O-KAWAZU that balloon across the          SHINOGI. Hiding JUKA sneak glimpses while TAMA and YO
trade bows. The lower tucks heads and raises feet as
dynamics concentrate in the JI.         MIDARE-KOMI BOSHI of TOBI and HAKIKAKE finds CHU-MARU          thricely drawn. URA KAERI ripples down the back to
hide-and-seek MUNE-YAKI islands, reappearing to the mid.          SURIAGE NAKAGO has three MEKUGI-ANA and his large, thin         stroked MEI in the lower:
MOTOCHIKA TSUKURU
