Kanewaka has the same name for several generations, and has been active as a builder of the Maeda clan, the lord of the Kanazawa domain, for generations. In addition to the Kanewaka school, there are other schools such as the Dharani school and the Fujishima school, but the Kanewaka school is known to have many good workers.
The second generation Kanwaka is the third son of the first generation Kanawaka and is called Matasuke, and he appointed it as a substitute work in his father’s later years, and said that many of the works after the Kanbun year are the second generation Kanbun. It is said that when he was the fifth generation Suketayu and Waka, he was forced to change jobs due to low demand for swords, and he closed his swordsmith business.

This Kanewaka sword was put on hold as “there is room for research in the inscription” at the examination of the Japan Art Sword Preservation Association.
It is a sword registered as a daimyo in Ishikawa prefecture in 1951, and since it is an initial registration among them, it is clear that it was trained at the request of the Maeda clan or the Maeda clan.
The ground iron flows through the small plates and becomes fluffy, and the sword pattern shows a lot of highlights, such as boiling water around the blade edge and running in hot water, mixing the blades with a blow-off wind, and entering small feet to create a turbulent wind. , Sasuga makes the viewer groan as Kanewaka.
The attached sword fittings are a luxurious structure with a plum blossom skin shark wrapped around the handle. As mentioned above, it can be seen that it is one of the Maeda clan’s swords, as the metal fittings are also accompanied by good work items that make you feel the height of the item.
It is said that Kagehira, who is said to be the de facto second generation who succeeded the Tsujimura family’s reign, did not call himself Kanewaka, but perhaps this sword is the only one in his life. There is also the possibility that it is an inscription work, so the style is Kanewaka itself, but considering that the inscription may have been judged to have room for research, I think it is a sword full of romance.
When new materials such as the above speculation are discovered at the Japan Art Sword Preservation Association, this Kanewaka sword will be a very valuable sword as the only Kanewaka work by Kagehira. If you are a connoisseur who is not influenced by the certificate, please pass on this sword to posterity with your own hands.

Nude weight 608 grams. Weight of 940 grams that was put in the sword and the sheath was removed.
