This sword is called “Himetsuru Ichimonji Aikuchi Uchigatana Koshirae” and made by the school of Fukuoka Ichimonji in Okayama Prefecture. The origin of this name is by the dream of a swordsmith of Fukuoka Ichimonji.
One night, a sword smith had a dream that one princess appeared and she pointed one sword and said “Tsuru (crane)”, and asked him to help her. So, this swordsmith named this sword as “Himetsuru Ichimonji” (Hime=princess, Tsuru = crane, Ichimonji = his sword school name).

One of the famous Sengoku Samurai(16th century) loved this “Himetsuru Ichimonji”, but his style of sword using technique was suitable for a sword without handguard (Tsuba), “Aikuchi”.
