Regal Lion & Bone Eater Description

A famous set of long and short katana, heirlooms of the Genji clan and which feature in The Tale of Heike. When Minamoto-no-Yorimasa slew a yokai called a nue that materialized from a dark cloud during his guard duty at the Imperial Court, the emperor rewarded him with the Regal Lion ("Shishio"), the longer sword of the pair. Why it has this name is a mystery and it bears no inscription, but from the forging method used it is thought to have originated in Yamato Province. The shorter sword, known as Honekui in Japanese, was used by one of Yorimasa's men to deliver the finishing blow to the nue.
