Special feature: Hyuga Daijo Fujiwara Sadatsugu is a student of the master of the first Echizen Yasutsugu and left many works with Echizen’s sword maker, but many of them are Wakizashi’s works.
From Aoi Art: Hyuga Daijyo Fujiwara Sadatsugu’s work is few and many are well-made. He was working for Yasutsugu Because he was active as the first disciple, the work is very similar to Yasutsugu’s work, and Jigane is also a work using Nanbantetsu. The work is a work that causes jihada by polishing and Hadame can be seen well. There are very few works with inscriptions and they are valuable. It can be said that Nikuoki is a solid and attractive work, and I definitely recommend this wakizashi. It can be said that the work in the blade is also a wild and active work.:
