Features: Originally, Shizu refers to the name of a place in Mino Province.
When Masamune moved there and started making swords, Mino Saburo Kaneuji took the name Shizu.
Therefore, Shizu usually refers to Kaneuji.
Historically, he is one of the ten disciples of Masamune and his work closely resembles Masamune's style.

Aoi Art’s Comment: Shizu refers to Kaneuji, one of Masamune's ten disciples who was active in the late Kamakura to early Nanbokucho period in Shizu, Mino Province.
The well-forged itame-hada and active chikei are notable.
The signature mentions ◻︎◻︎ Fourth Year, Fifth Month, and August of the Ninth Year of Tenpo, indicating that the blade was shortened in Tenpo 9 (1838).
The meaning of ◻︎◻︎ Fourth Year, Fifth Month is unclear.
The koshirae is splendid, and the sword attributed to Shizu is remarkable, highly recommended.
