The inscription is Sosyu Jyu Tsunamune, but there is a question
There is no guarantee. So-syuden in the late Muromachi period also has such a Hamon work,
but Owari and Mino also have similar blade rests, and in my opinion, it is a work of Sanami’s school in Mino.
There are several Kitae Kizu on the Shinogiji to Mune from the habaki to the 20 cm tip.
Koshirae is also solid and can be said to be a recommended work.
