Special feature: Bisyu Osafune Moriie is usually monotonous Gunome Choji Midare
Hamon. The first was said to be Haakeda school, but probably Kozori school

From Aoi Art: This work is a work of Eitoku Nenki, and although there are some loose parts in Jigane, fine Mokume hada and Koitame hada are mixed.
Utsuri will appear. Iemori has many works that have decayed due to
the small inscription, and this work is also true. At the Japanese
Sword Museum
The part of the inscription was identified, and here the work of
The Nanbokucyo period of Bizen Osafune Moriie was revived.
When the Muromachi period goes down from the generation of
Nanbokucyo era, there are many monotonous Gunome Midare works,
and hamon near Monouchi cannot be seen like this work. The bright
hamon has some flaws, but I would definitely recommend it as a work
of the Nanbokucho period.
