SPECIAL ORDERED mystery kanji help

Recommended Posts

I have been studying a shinshinto wakizashi with includes the "special ordered by" inscription. The 2nd kanji (right below the ana) needs explaining to accurately understand the inscription. I've asked a knowledgeable friend, but how this is read (before the patron's name) remained not clearly understood. Perhaps a NMB member who is fluent in Japanese can help? Let's see what happens. Appreciate clearing this reading up, if only for my records.

That is so very interesting. I suppose it telling up that SADAYOSH is an old established family, and obviously a patron of Naokatsu in his early days. Thank you very much Moriyama san for identifying this for me.
