[ Highlight ] In the shinto period, the Bizen Osafune swords creation was revived by the Sukesada school, which followed the trend of the koto period, and flourished again. The ninth generation, Eisho kyu-dai matsuyo Sukesada, counted from Yosanzaemon Sukesada, known as the master craftsman of the Suebizen sword, also contributed to the rise of the shinto Osafune swordsmiths. The first generation is regarded as the twin of Ueno Daijo Sukesada. This work has been authenticated as the work of two generations. The blade composition appears to have been intended to reproduce the flamboyant Choji-midare randomness of the Fukuoka Ichimonji school. Ko-ashis appeared well, yos and tobi-yaki area appeared. Pale utsuri comes to be appeared as well.
