The style is based on the master Samonji, who insists on a beautiful stimulate Jigane blade with active Hamon, and Bo-shi is often pushed up and turns back sharply.

From Aoi Art: This sword has slightly wider and is in the shape  
of Nanbokucho era with Kissaki’s extension, and in particular, the  
colors of the times of Enbun and Jyoji are well displayed. The Hamon has a lot of small ashi in suguha based, and there is more work in the blade from the Monouchi area. Bo-shi represents the blade  pattern, which is sharp and does not return. It is also preferable that the work shows the characteristics of Suesa and is powerful and healthy. The fine Jigane and Hamon are works that you will never get Kunihiro. There are Yoshisada, Hiroyuki, Koan, and Sadakichi, but no one can be identified. There is no doubt that he is a very highly regarded swordsmith.
We recommend this sword for you.
