It looks good is long and „papered“. But who is the smith I can’t find him anywhere. When I ask the seller he told me I could find him in Japanese books only. After asking in wich book he told me he don’t have it and don’t know wich one.

Azuma Tamonbei Masatsugu - 東多門兵衛正次, mid 1600's smith from Bizen. Chū-saku in Fujishiro, just checked the entry on him and very tiny bit of info on him there.

 

Here is a reference item: (edited second one out as it was same school but different smith by my mistake)

Thank you very much Jussi.

He also signed masanari i think. Because in the eBay description was written he also signed Masamori .

 

Edit: masanari was his father 🤦‍♂️

Unfortunately I own pretty much zero books on Shintō swords as they fall outside my personal focus, so I cannot help much. Fujishiro lists him being the son of Masanari (正成), seems like Masamori (正盛) [whose work was on my second link] is supposedly son of Masatsugu.
