Tsurumaru’s name uses the kanji “鶴” which could also mean “crane”. The crane is said to be a symbol of fortune and longevity in Japan, but Tsurumaru historically brought ruin to his chain of masters. Nevertheless, he is still the best preserved blade from the Heian perios despite his turbulent history.
