From Aoi Art: At Edo period Kanbun era was a pieceful era so demand of katana was decreased. So sword smiths worked in this era needed some ingenuity like make Doranba-Hamon, swords with Utsuri, carvings… to sell swords. Kunisuke and 
Kuniyasu also are one of them. This sword has has long Kinsuji and clear Nioikuchi on both side. Mei also remain clearly. We recommend you this sword.
