Special feature:Owari seki school means that many sword makers who were
working at Mino province, and moved to Owari and Nagoya shinto
sword makers like Wakasaon Kami Fujifusa, Hida Kami Fujifusa,
Sagami Kami Masatsune, Ho-ki Kami Nobutaka, Hata Mitsuyo and
so on.

From Aoi Art: Although it is identified as Owari Seki in the appraisal, in
my opinion it is a work that looks like Echigo Kami Kanesada and the
Hamon is very active work. Sometimes Owari seki tried Doranba
hamon but it is difficult to reach the quality like this sword.
We recommend this very active sword for you.
