From Aoi Art: Joto Kami Fujiwara Yasuyuki is a father of Sagami Kami Fujiwara Yasuyuki. After his father dies, he succeeded to his father and lived in Owari. This work has no critical flaws or defects: wonderful work which can remind us of Yasutsugu swords. Koshirae is also a nice work with good fittings which remind us of Edo Higo works. Especially, Menuki is a great piece of art with Shoki pattern with gold color. We truly recommend this one to you.
