Additional Information: This swordsmith, Fujiwara Kunitora, first generation was born in 1658 in Taira, Iwaki Ohshu Province. With the support of the Naito Family he moved to Osaka and became a student of Inoue Shinkai, who was a top rank swordsmith active during that time. After Shinkai's death, he returned to Iwaki and established his own forge. He became an official worker of the Naito Family and a renowned swordsmith in Iwaki. This blade was forged when he was 50 years old when he was well established. Because of the exceptional craftsmanship of this blade, it has been referred to in the Kanzan Oshigata Shinto Jiten and the Iwaki no Toko to Kinko, Swordsmiths and Craftsmen from Iwaki. It has passed the Tokubetsu Hozon Token in 2001.
