Appraisal Quiz : #370

Previous answer is
Mumei (Yamato Shizu)

Special feature : Yamato shizu means that Sizu saburo Kaneuji was making swords at Yamato province.
But he and his students moved to Mino province called as Yamato shizu.
This blade mixed Yamato, Soshu and Mino.
We recommed this nice balde.
