[ Highlight ] : The Sue-seki swordsmith Kanefusa continued to have the same name from the mid-Muromachi to the Shintō period. According to the inscription book, the swordsmith who cut the inscription "by Kanefusa" was the grandson of Kaneyoshi I, the eldest son of Kanefusa (Seizaemon) from the Eikyo period. His name was Shiro and he made his sword in the late 15th century, around the time of Bunmei. There is a work that carves a chronological inscription for the tenth and sixteenth years of Bunmei 10 and 16. The body is stately, with an extended tip and a well-distributed iron body. The alternating choji blade pattern, with frequent ko-ashis and yô, is gorgeous, showing a variety of changes.

[ Conditions ] There are areas of slightly hada-tasu state on the shinogi-ji and around the front monochiuchi. The condition of the polishing and the condition of the koshirae is good.
