Kotobuki Swordsmith's real name was Shigeru Miyaguchi, and he studied under Shigetsugu Kasama Itsusai.

He succeeded to the third generation of Miyaguchi Ikkasai, a prestigious family that had continued since Shigeju at the end of the Edo period.

It is a top-class construction representative of the early Showa era and was called ``Miyaguchi Consistent Saijuhiro''.


Ranked with Teiji Takahashi, Sadakatsu Gassan, Toshihide Horii, and others in the ranking of holy swordsmiths

He is ranked among the ``sacred items'' of which there are only a few.


At the Japanese sword forge in the precincts of Yasukuni Shrine, one is ordered by the top chief swordsmith

He was active as a Yasukuni swordsmith and created the sword dedicated to the 700th anniversary of Emperor Gotoba.

When he resumed making swords after the war, several strokes had the inscription "Yasuhiro" from the Yasukuni swordsmith era

His personal signature, ``Juhiro,'' was used only for fine forging work.
