 The first Kawachi-no-kami Kunisuke studied under Horikawa Kunihiro, and after his master's death in 19 Keicho, he moved to Osaka with Kunisada and became a pioneer of the Osaka Shinto sword. The Kunisuke family originally came from the Seishu Ishido family. The son of the first, Kawachi no Kami Kunisuke II, is known as " Naka Kawachi ", even though he is one of several generations of the same name. He excelled at producing gorgeous Cho-ji-midare on beautiful jigane. This is not a typical work of the second generation. But the fact that it is partly interspersed with fist shape cho-jis. This suggests that it is the work of the second generation. In this sword, o-gunomes stands out in notare. Well attached nie, sunagashis appeared so often. This is a magnificent Wakizashi.
