As a feature of Kaify sword makers, there are many works mixed with Ayasugi jigane,
and Ujiyoshi and Ujitsugu, which are said to be the flow of Nami no hira,
have many works that are named shinogi ji by Kiriha zukuri,

From Aoi Art : In the Edo period, Kaihu swords makers lost
momentum and declined, and good works like this one came to be produced in the Edo period.
This work is completely different from the works made in the past Muromachi period,
especially when Jigane was well bright and Hamon was beautiful and polished.
It is Ubu Nakago and the result is excellent Koshirae tsuki.
Menuki is a phoenix work with a length of 9 cm. Kyusyu Higo koshirae is attached
and the appearance at that time is often seen. I recommend this sword with Koshirae.
