Special feature: Kozaemon Yukihira learned sword making from his father, Miyairi Yukihira(Living National Treasure). He showed his work in 1983 at the 19th Exhibition for the first time and won Effort Prize. After that, he won Excellence Prize, Kanzan Prize, and 6 tims Takamatsumiya Prize. Later in Heisei 12, he was approved as Mukansa swordsmith. In Heisei 8, he changed his Mei from Miyairi Megumi to Kozaemon Yukihira. He set his aim of sword making to Soshuden, and now, he is still trying his best.

From Aoi Art: This work was made by him after he changed his Mei to “Kozaemon Yukihira”, and he traced Toranba of Sukehiro. Jigane is amazing, and the blade looks really well-shaped because of Mitsumune. Many people expect him to be next Living National Treasure. We truly recommend this nice piece of art to you.
