This work represents the most famous scene at the Battle of
   "Kawanajima" which is famous for its fierceness. Fighting in the
   vanguard, Uesugi Kensin unbelievably dashed into Shigen's main
   camp with only a few troops. Most efforts have been made to
   recreate the vivid feeling of the twinkle when Kensin waved
   around his sword at his rival on the moving horse. Kensin
   believed deeply in Buddhism and even thought himself the
   incarnation of Buddha. In order to represent Kensin's
   magnetism, we have recreated the special sword which has no
   shell. Only people who do not have fear being hurt will use a
   sword without shell, the part of a sword that protects one's hand
   from rival's sword. On the base of the item, you can see Kensin's
   symbol word which was painted on the troops' flag.
