Era: The Tenbun era, the Muromachi period
Shape: The blade is slightly broad and very thick with longer Kissaki and deeper Sori. There are engravings of dragon and Dokko on the front, and above them Bo-hi. There are Bo-hi and Soe-hi on the back.
Jigane: Koitamehada is mixed with Komokumehada with pale Utsuri.
Hamon: Koniedeki Chojimidare. Ashi comes in a lot. Tobiyaki comes in. Boshi has deep Yaki(Ichimai Fu) and turns back.

Special Feature: This work has Tobiyaki on the Hamon, so it is different from Bizento. Jigane is also different, it is rather like Soshu-school works. NBTHK has judged it as Shimada Hirosuke. This style is also similar to the works of Hirotsugu, but Nakago is slightly more broad, so it could be after Shimada Hirotsugu. This engraving has the characteristics of Shimada school, we suppose.
