and Grandchild of first generation Tadayoshi.
He made unusual Cumulonimbus cloud-style Hamon and was well repotted from that period.
Even in modern times, many sword collectors collect his swords.
He changed his name to Masahiro on Kanei 2nd November and got the title Kawachi Daijyo in May of the same year.
He passed away on Kanbun 5th, Feb, 5th.
His Hamon is a Special province of all of swords makers.
2nd generation Tadahiro sometimes made like this hamon but this kind of Hamon was made by Masahiro as Daisaku.
this blade is healthy and typical his Cumulonimbus cloud Hamon.

From Aoi Art: Gunome Midare Hamon, which was created to imitate cumulonimbus clouds in the blue sky of midsummer, is unrivaled by a swordsmith, who expresses lightning in Kinsuji. Although it is evaluated as a Shinto masterpiece by Toko Jiten etc., in my opinion, it possesses the skill of a swordsmith who is located in the best and finest works. This work is a typical work of Masahiro, and he makes Midareba Hamon well
