    Hello. I can't find any trace of this blacksmith called YOSHIFUSA 義 房 which could be dated to the Koto period. but above all could you confirm this signature as being that of YOSHIFUSA. cordially. R Gérard.
  4. Good evening. here is a description of the blade that I presented this afternoon; Wakizashi blade and habaki. Unsigned. Out of polish, sold as is. Nagasa: 38.7 cm. Sori: 0.6 cm. Moto-haba: 2.8 cm. Saki-haba: 2.2 cm. Moto-gasane: 0.5 cm. Saki-gasane: 0.4 cm. Boshi is different, its temper is unknown to me. The mune oscillates between kaku-mune and maru-mune. The shinogi is closer to the mune like the yamashiro school. The nakago looks like funa-gata.
