Appraisal Quiz #682

Previous answer is
  Mumei (Shizu)

Special Feature: This work by Shizu looks really aggressive, and it looks like
works of Masamune. It has some flaw, and if it can be repaired, it will
pass Jumyo shinsa. In Shinogi, there are two Hi, and these are
marvelously engraved. In my opinion, this bright Hamon is quite
similar to O-Shizu, and Kinsuji in Hachu is incredible. This long Kinsuji
is really rare to see and it doesn’t bore anybody.
