He was one of the most highly regarded Hizen swordsmiths, and learned smithing techniques from his father to create his masterpieces.

From Aoi Art:The 4th Tadayoshi, who had outstanding performance, took over the 3rd Mutsukami Tadayoshi and produced excellent works. This work does Ashinaga Choji wonderfully. It’s long enough to accommodate long legs. It has a smoky atmosphere.
