Home country Bungo. The first name was changed to Yukiharu and later Yukihira, and it is called the descendant of Yukihira. After moving to Enpo Naka Karatsu, he came to Musashi Edo and lived in Azabu and Takaban. He also studied under Tsunahiro in Sagami and lived in Karatsu again.
After receiving a letter from the Honami family, the name was changed to Honjo, and in old age he was chanted as Bungotaro, and the character “book” in the inscription was broken down like a pine needle, so it is a famous business as Matsuba Honko. I’m a swordsmith.

The Hiroga school is a swordsmith representing Hoki blacksmith, and was divided into the Dosoo family and the Mita family. The Dosoo family swords were made in Kurayoshi Kajimachi from the civilization of the Muromachi period to the Edo period, and the Mita family began with Gorozaemon Hiroga, who is said to be the first Soshu Tsunahiro Mori, and the same name is Edo. It continued until the beginning of the era, and both families prospered greatly.

According to Dr. Kanyama Sato’s appraisal, this sword is the best of the old swords, Hiroga, but in recent years, it was changed to Matsubamoto, who was active around the mid-Edo period Genroku in the examination of the Japan Art Swords Preservation Association.
Considering the balance and appearance when you pick it up, it seems more appropriate to think of it as a work from the Edo period, but in any case, the sword blade that can be boiled for forging the grain is a work that follows the tradition of Suisoshu. There is no doubt about it.
Sunagare can be seen everywhere in the blade, and the burnt heads of the mutual eyes look like flames, and the intricately intricate blade cutting composition is full of supremacy and does not make you feel bored.
This is a naive item that was handed over from a house in Fukushima prefecture, and this is the first gem to be on the market.
