Appraisal Quiz : #414

Previous answer is
Kawachi Kami Kunisuke the first generation

1 : Hamon is Suguha from the Hamachi. Please remind Osaka shinto.
2 : And the Choji Midare Hamon make us remind 2nd generation Kawachi Kami Kunisuke and Higo Kami Kuniyasu.
3 : If the blade is 2nd generation Kunisuke, The Hamon must be Choji-Midare and also Kobushi-choji.
Generally speaking 2nd generation Kunissuke is Kanbun style shape without much curve. And also Boshi turns round shape but this sword is rather different.
4 : First generation Kunisuke and his friend Izumi Kami Kunisuke both same Hamon.
