Characteristics: Kanemasa was a swordsmith in Musashi, and he was active during the Genroku era. This was a challenging time for swordsmiths as the demand for Japanese swords had significantly decreased. Many of their works were created for appreciation rather than practical use. Creating intricate carvings on the blade and producing elaborate hamon patterns were important during this period.

From Aoi Art: Crafting a double-sided lamination spearhead is rare and would likely have been made only for special orders.
