From Aoi Art: This sword has a straight blade with a deep Niouguchi, which is well piled with koitame-hada. The deep blade crest on the Niiguchi becomes a blade crest that gradually pulls out, and the bo-shi turns round and disappears. The deep blade crest of this work shows the good workmanship that seems to be the work of the third generation.
