Aoi Art’s Comment: The third generation of Yasutsugu was divided between Echizen and Musashi. The Edo third generation had the opportunity to interact with various other smiths and superior craftsmen, which significantly advanced their skills. Therefore, many works of Yasutsugu made in Edo are considered refined.
