Tsuba: Double-layered gold coating.
Blade length: 53.0 centimeters or 20.86inches
Curvature: 0.9 centimeters or 0.35 inches
Mekugi-ana: 2 holes.
Motohaba: 3.12 centimeters or 1.23 inches.
Sakihaba: 2.29 centimeters or 0.90 inches.
Kasane: 0.68 centimeters or 0.27 inches.
Sword weight: 550 grams.
Era: Edo period, around Kanbun era.
Shape: The sword has a wide body, thick kasane, and a large elongated tip, creating a well-balanced appearance with a prominent elongated shape.
Jigane: The jigane is finely forged with a fine ko-itame hada and shows a well-refined nioi, resulting in a beautiful Hizen skin, specifically a konuka skin.
Hamon: The hamon closely resembles that of Masahiro, with a charming mix of gunome midare resembling piled-up cumulus clouds, entering the ji neatly, and featuring a deep suguha in the monouchi area, with a long yakiba and a deep turnback in the bōshi area.

Special features: Kurobei, the younger brother of the first-generation Masahiro, learned the technique of Dutch iron in the Keian 3rd year, at the age of 32, and inherited the position of Dewa Daijo in the Shōho 5th year. In the Kanbun 3rd year, he was appointed as Dewa no Kami, and he passed away in the Tenna 3rd year in May, at the age of 66. Although his works resemble those of Masahiro, they differ slightly, with a more dynamic and intense design featuring a fewer number of gold lines in the hamon and a more disordered appearance of the hat. The deep curvature seen in this work is not found in Masahiro’s works.

From Aoi Art: The swordsmith, who has learned the technique of Dutch iron and created numerous works, has crafted this piece with a distinct hat hamon, displaying a spirited design.
