Remarks:

3rd Gen - He was called Rokurozaemonnojo. Very same style as Yasumitsu and

Norimitsu. His father is Toshimitsu

From Nihon Toko Jiten (Fujishiro):

SUKEMITSU ROKURÔZAEMONNOJÔ [bUN'AN 1444 BIZEN] CHÛKOTÔ CHÛJÔSAKU

He is the son of Toshimitsu, the father Ukyônosuke Katsumitsu and Sakyôshin

Munemitsu, he takes Osafune as a place name and was in Oku-gôri Miyuki Mura. He has

works from Eikyô to around Bunmei, his style and mei kanji resemble that of Gorôzaemon

Norimitsu, and even though he was neither his older or younger brother, is thought to

have been in the same family. As for his style, many of his works are superior in

comparison to Norimitsu, and they are mostly tantô and wakizashi. (Ryôwazamono)

 

This beautiful Wakizashi has been appraised by Fred Fimio (President, Japanese

Sword Society of Canada) at a value of $8500 USD ($11,409 CAD).

 

My asking price is $10,000 CAD plus shipping & insurance, but that is open to

negotiation.
