[ Highlight ] The sword was originally a long sword, but it has been cut off a little. This sword shows the characteristics of Suebizen well in the jigane "地鉄" and the blade pattern. There are many Osafune swordsmiths from the end of the Muromachi period who were named Sukesada, the most famous of which are Hikobei-no-jo, Yosa-zaemon-no-jo and Minamoto-nohyoe-no-jo. The style is powerful and imposing.
