    Echizen Sadamichi

    Hi Brian, The only similar smith I found that worked from Echizen was an early signature of a Shimosaka smith- Sadatsugu, but he signed with a different Sada (貞道)
  2. I'm getting Shinto Mino vibes
  3. May be an undocumented Shinto smith According to the Sesko compendium, there was a Ujisada 氏定 that worked in Settsu, Kanbun era. Maybe this one was related
  4. 攝津国源氏重 Settsu kuni Minamoto Ujishige
  5. I'm not 100% of the last three characters (mb completely wrong), but could be 塚原殿 謹作 Lord Tsukahara, made with care
  6. Yes I think shinshinto era There doesnt seem to be a documented smith with the exact "yoshi" According to this https://asahitoken.jp/contents/01_token/details/token-D/D008_sold.html - your Tsuguyoshi would most likely have been related to another Etchu Toyama Tsuguyoshi who signed with a different 'yoshi' 継義
  7. Etchu Toyama ju Minamoto Tsuguyoshi saku
  8. Sukesada The other side appears to say Sanjo Awataguchi Kagemitsu 三条粟田口景光 but I don't think there was a Kagemitsu of the Awataguchi school that I'm aware of.
  9. I also really liked and would recommend After the Rain (Ame agaru)
  10. I'm not an expert on gendaito but afaik the ikkansai Smiths made gendaito, and have been papered by the nbthk See

    Suke Kani

    looks absolutely pristine for a Ko Bizen. Could it be shinshinto Bizen instead of Ko Bizen? There was a Bizen Yokoyama school Sukekane... Just a thought, attractive blade nonetheless
  12. Yes it might be a line of Ieyoshis from Kaga province. See ref http://ginza.choshuya.co.jp/sale/gj/r2/04/09_ieyoshi.htm
  13. Fujiwara ju Ieyoshi (your pics are upside down btw) Probably Kaga
