Era: The Keio era, the Edo period
Shape: The blade is broad and thick. There is some Suriage Machiokuri, but it doesn’t bother appreciation.
Jigane: Koitamehada is very dense: plain.
Hamon: Niedeki Gunomemidare. Chojimidare of Yokoyama school.

Special feature: Sukenaga and Sukekane from Yokoyama school created this unique Hamon and radicated their own production methods. We wonder how they tried hard to create this unique Choji Hamon.

From Aoi Art: This blade is longer and more solid than normal swords by Bishu Osafune Ju Yokoyama Sukekane. Clear Jigane with strong Chojiba shows unique beauty. We truly recommend this to you.
