Special feature: Kawachi Kami Kunisuke is a son of 1st, and we have also 3rd,
so sometimes he is called Naka(middle) Kawachi. He was so skilled he had ever
made enormous number of swords in his life. He was very good at Choji-ba,
so some people call him Shinto Ichimonji. Moreover, he made his original Choji,
which looks like human fist, Kobushi-Choji, so he was also called as the same
as his Choji name. He passed away on the 21th of August, Genroku 11.(1698).
Dr. Kunzan had written “Jyo-jyo”, which is very rare. The blade is 76.4cm long,
with great thickness and powerfulness. This sword is on many books like Osaka Shinto Zufu,
Nihonto Taikan, Shinto Taikan, Kanzan Token Koza, Nihonto Meito 100 Sen, etc.
We suppose it is the sword to be in the most healthy condition amongst every sword in Japan.

From Aoi Art: A Juyo Token by the 2nd generation of Kawachi Kami Kunisuke,
which is on Nihonto Taikan. It is long enough, heavy enough, a powerful work.
Dr. Kunzan wrote it as Jyo-jyo and this quality is magnificent.
It is almost impossible to find ones like this in the market, we truly recommend this to you.
