From Aoi Art: Tairyu sai Sokan worked as a disciple of Koyama Munetsugu
and created a more unique style.
In particular, many of the works that put out Utsuri to Jitetsu are Komidare
style hamon’s works like this work, and they have a large blade pattern of His work tends to be less visible.
Mounting is tsuba, Fuchikashira, Menuki is all Mogarashi Soten’s Samurai
with high engraving and color painting with gold.
It is a wonderful work. It is a work that I would definitely recommend.
