Hi everobody

 

I have this Kozuka signed Masa Haru which is similar to the Kozuka presented in "the Arts of the Japanese Sword" of B.W. Robinson plate 81. It is mentioned that it is from Mito school. There are so many Masa Haru artists with the same Kanji....Would it be the Soiken Masaharu Haynes  H03925.0?

 

Does some one have tosogu pictures of this artist?

 

Thank you

 

Bruno

Bruno, the work speaks for itself, very fine!  Have you searched the VAM website, some info should be availble there, or you could contact them, you have the accession/cat. no.?

 

Cheers,

From the style, my first thought was Ishiguro school. I then checked Sesko's meikan, and there is an Ishiguro smith by the name of Masaharu. The signature on your kozuka is also much closer to Ishiguro Masaharu than Mito Masaharu. In my opinion, the author misattributed the kozuka

I fully support this idea of a wrong attribution in this book. This kozuka has no elements which might bring to a Mito classification. I' ll dig in my research in the Ishiguro direction from now.Thank you for the information.
