KOGARASUMARU There were more than one KOGARASUMARU. It is a name given to a famous sword. A sword of a type. Perhaps it was thought of as the true Japanese sword, residing in a world of Chinese style KIRIHA-TSUKURI. It is thought that the KOGARASUMARU was the inspiration for the curved, single-edged HANCHO-TO which was apparently necessitated as a shock reducer for fighting from horseback. There are two or three true KOGARASUMARU swords known to exist today. There are, of course, many reproductions and reverently made swords of varying quality.
