Appraisal Quiz #725

Previous answer is
  Kuniyuki Gakumei

Special feature:Rai Kuniyuki is the founder of the Rai school, a son of Kuniyoshi,
and a famous swordsmith called Rai Kuni Taro.  
The visit to the country was with people from the Korean War Peninsula, that is, Goryeo
Although it is said that there was a group that made Japanese swords in Korea at that time,
it is questionable. Rather, a person who naturalized in Japan
It seems correct to say that he learned from a Japanese swordsmith. However,
what kind of swords were made in Korea at that time after going to the Korean Peninsula?
I’d like to find out what it is,
