Appraisal Quiz : #335

Previous answer is
Bizen Sukeyori

Special feature : Bizen Sukeyori was present in Kobizen Kencho, Fukuoka Ichimonji and Bicchu. On the surface, this blade look conspicuously like Ko Aoe. There is signature"Bizen", we also guess the Sukeyori of Fukuoka Ichimonji. Hamon is deep Nioikuchi Gunome Midare. It is a regal looking blade. This Sinogiji is a little bit rough for a reason of shaving the Shinogiji.
On the Ji, there are Midare Utsuri visibly. It is rare that there is signature. We recommend this blade very much.
