Hi all,

I am looking for information on a Yari smith (I believe) who signed Ishibashi(?) Suketoshi from around late Koto to early Shinto period. I have a Yari by him, but cannot find him in my references. The Mei is valid, the Yari has Hozon cert.

 

Any help is much appriciated!

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Jesper

Thank you Jean for you comment and suggesting Ishido Suketoshi.  Are there any references to him using Ishibashi in his signature?

 

Here are some photoes. It is a bit oversized OmiYari with 77 cm three-sided blade with 57.3 cm ubu Nakago. Masame hade on two sides and Itame on the third. Gentle Suguha based hamon. 2 Nakago-ana.

Apologies for the bad photoes.

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Jesper

It is the only one fitting your date. He did not use Ishibashi.

I agree with you, Jean, but the use of Ishibashi in the mei may indicate another smith untill Ishido Suketoshi´s use of it in his signature is verified. It may even be an unrecorded Yari smith. 

 

Thank you.

Jesper

The only use of Ishibashi in Sesko's index is for a first name or a place in Izumo province. I think you'll find it'll be the 2nd or 3rd gen Ishido Suketoshi who specialized in Yari, maybe it was one of their first names?

This kanji 塔 is read To not hashi or bashi
Your smith is Heianjo ju Ishido Suketoshi 平安城住石道助利
According to the Meikan he used Ishido 石堂and Ishido 石塔 in his signatures
