All,
I stumbled across this in my daily scrolling through my favorite sites. Outside of the nakago- jiri, I never would have pinned this Tanto to Sue Bizen (or any other bizen for that matter). Extremely active, nie-deki hitatsura hamon sure seems to shout soshu, more then Bizen. I'm not saying the papers are wrong, just a curious call. To me it looks like a bizen nakago was welded on a soshu blade (obviously it wasn't - just saying).

Maybe that's why the NBTHK never returns my calls...

Hi Joe, moroba tanto such as this are often seen in Sue-Bizen. Choji coming from both sides can create a hitatsura-like appearance. See the two examples below. One us a Katsumitsu / Munemitsu gassaku yari, and the other is a Sue-Bizen Sukesada in moroba-zukuri.

Oh fine! Side with the NBHTK Raymond!! I now devalue your opinion, since you don't agree with me ( ;-) )

Edit to add: In the midst of being sarcastic, I forgot to say thanks for the examples. It's always a good day when I am corrected (and actually learn something, rather than trying to extinguish a stupid argument or fight about habaki).

Hello Joe,

 

Darcy have a nice example of a hitatsura hamon on a sue bizen sword:
