Collection of photos from WWII smith's


Recommended Posts

Hello together,
I always find it nice to see a face to the smith. I found a photo of Ishido Teruhide (Kikuchi Seiichi) - 石堂輝秀 (菊池清一) b.1900 - d.1982

I have a sword from him and hope to make others with it also a small joy. 





Maybe there is interest to collect more photos from WWII smith's here.

Perhaps someone here can help. I think Master Takahashi Yoshimune is sitting on the chair and behind him are his students: Imai Sadahige, Imai Hisatsugu, Minamoto Yoshihide and Toriō Hiromasa? But who is who?
