1. 太刀Tachi. 正恒 Masatsune, 重要美術品 Juyo Bijutsuhin.

2. 刀 Katana. 無銘 (Nagamitsu)

3. Tachi. 国宗 Kunimune

4. Tachi. 雲次 Unji

5. Tachi. 備前国長船住近景 Chikakage

6. Tachi. 備前長船康光 Yasumitsu

*This Genbyoei/Genbei no Jo Sukesada might be the son of Yosozaemon, or possibly the grandson (Nidai Genbei). Will ask.

If anyone is visiting Japan this fall/autumn, see if you can get down to Okayama where there are two very good displays planned.

1. Bizen Osafune Sword Museum will run theirs over eight weeks in September and October, with 40 top Bizen swords, including about 15 from private collections that have never been seen in living memory before. Five will come from Hayashibara. The rest will be from the sword museum itself.

2. Okayama Prefectural Museum will have a top quality exhibition running for five weeks from 8 September to mid-October. Recently-polished Hono To will be part of the 84 blade display, including the large Kozuke Daijo Sukesada that I was not able to post photos of. Interestingly all this positive public activity by the sword society has drawn favourable glances from the authorities, and there is a plan afoot to award this Sukesada some Prefectural special status.
