Japanese Sword Dojigiri Yasutsuna Paper Model - by Hirai Tosiaki
& MINYA


Created by Japanese designers Hirai Tosiaki & MINYA for Canon's website, this beautiful miniature paper model of a legendary katana, the Mikazuki Munechika, considered one of the five greatest swords of Japan, forged during the Heian period by the master swordsmith Yasutsuna. The legend says that this sword was used by the great warrior Minamoto Yorimitsu to bring down the monstrous Shuten Dôji of Mt. Ôe in Tanba, thus earning the epithet of "Dôji-slaying Yasutsuna" (Dojigiri Yasutsuna). The Dojigiri Yasutsuna, occupies only two sheets of paper and seems to me to be on an approximate scale of 1/50, but I'm just relying on the templates, so I do not have assurance.

A lenda diz que esta espada foi usada pelo grande guerreiro Minamoto Yorimitsu para derrotar o monstro Shuten Dôji, que habitava o Monte Ôe, e por isso ganhou o nome de "Yasutsuna matadora de Dôji" (Dojigiri Yasutsuna). A Dojigiri Yasutsuna ocupa apenas duas folhas de papel e me parece estar em uma escala aproximada de 1/50, mas eu estou baseando-me apenas nos templates, então não tenho certeza.
