Real name, Kensaku Motomura. Lives in Nagasemachi, Saga City, Saga Prefecture. He was appointed as an Army swordsmith in 1945, and won the Chairman’s Award at the Army Swords Exhibition in 1943. In 19 of the following year, he received the exhibition president’s award and was appointed as a commissioned Guntō training technical instructor of the Army Weapons Administration Headquarters. After the war, he was a highly capable Showa swordsmith who was active throughout the prewar and postwar eras, such as being appointed to the role of Ise Jingu Goho Swordsmith twice (1952 and 1945).

This sword is a masterpiece of Kanemoto who was trained by the old-fashioned training method as a high-class officer’s military sword around 1945. The ground iron mixed with the wood grain is well kneaded and clogged, and the sword is as beautiful as the Hizen sword of the Edo period, the small bran skin that Tadayoshi Ichimon is proud of, and the straight blade with a bright and clear scent. It is a wonderful work, and you can feel the admiration for Tadayoshi, a former swordsmith, and you can see how it has been cherished from the polishing applied to this sword. Dignified Ho and Kosinogi. The skillful technique of sword polishing, such as the smooth hat narume, on the side hand that is firmly erected from the base, instead of the side hand that was just drawn by cutting the lines, brings out the charm of the ground blade that this sword has. It makes you feel refreshed just by looking at it.
It is a masterpiece that has been trained very well, so please attach a preserved sword certificate and keep it for a long time.
