1868,June.明治元年(9月4日~), 1868. Aoi Bijyutsu:Gyokushin Saimasakage was quite skilled as a swordsmith and entered the
Meiji era when it was about to begin. Before long, Haito rrei came out and production of Japanese swords was prohibited, and Haitou rei was issued and production of swords was prohibited. Unfortunately for him, it is assumed that he has moved on to other jobs. All that was left was this magnificent work.
