Special feature: Kawachi Daijo Fujiwara Masahiro was a swordsmith of Hizen province. He was born as the First son of Yoshinobu and became a son-in-law of the First Tadayoshi. Masahiro got the title of Kawachi Daijo in 1628. He passed away in 1665, aged 59. Brilliant hamon reminds us of a cumulonimbus cloud in summer. Many sword collectors love his hamon that is rich in originality. From my personal point view to make this kind of Hamon is so difficult and having a high standard. He was ranked as Shinto Jyo saku. But we think that he is Shinto JyoJyo saku ranking sword smith. We recommend this sword for you.

From Aoi Art: The Jigage is wonderful. The Hamon looks like thunderhead in the summer sky. The Ha is very bright. This is a master piece of Wakizashi. We recommend it for you.
