Other Info
Hida no Kami Ujifusa, Second generation was born in 1567 and was the eldest son of Wakasa no Kami Ujifusa. In 1589 at the age of 23, he started to learn forging at Kiyosu. After his father passed away, he became a disciple of Nobutaka. In 1592 he received the title "Hida no Kami" arranged by Kampaku Hidetsugu. He went on to forge for Fukushima Masanori, Matsudaira Tadayoshi and Tokugawa Yoshinao. In 1610 he moved to Nagoya around the time the Nagoya Castle was built. 1631 he passed away at the age of 65. He had a high reputation in that his blades are most brilliant among the Owari Province swordsmiths. He was ranked Josaku Toko, the third highest rank. This wakizashi is a perfect example of his excellent work. As can been seen, the Habaki tsuka is attached, in general good blade swords were reserved in this way in the high society families like the Daimiyo-ke. So you can guess this blade came from someone highly ranked in society. It has passed the Tokubetsu Hozon Token on July 21, 2016.
