From Aoi Art: Ecchu Kami Masatoshi was the fourth son of Kanemichi in Seki.
He worked hard and was allowed to engrave a chrysanthemum crest
by the Imperial Family. Chrysanthemum crests started from the 2nd generation,
so the 1st Mei has no chrysanthemum crests. This swordsmith is regarded as Wazamono and very sharp.
