[ Highlight ] This sword was made by Kanetsune, who was active in Mino and Seki from the mid-Muromachi period onwards. The name of Kanetsune has been used by many swordsmiths over the generations, extending into the Shintō period. There are several theories about Kanetsune, including the legend of 'Tebou Kanetsune', in which he explored the hotness of his master's sword at the time of firing, or was beaten with an iron mallet because of his father's anger over his training. There is also a letter of red seal given to Kanetsune Sukeemon by Oda Nobunaga, and it is known that he was the master of the Seki forge. This piece is a sword with a brilliantly nie attached and wavy blade on a wrought surface of itame-with-changes.
