Aoi Art’s Comment: A sturdy piece with good meat placement, this tanto comes with a reasonably good koshirae, making it highly recommended. Known as Hoki no Kami Fujiwara Yoshiyuki, also called Shimizu Fujishiro with an original name Yoshiyuki. He passed away on September 21, Meiji 19 (1886). Although many of his works are suguha, this piece is more elaborate and glamorous.
