Kanetsune were succeeded for several generations from Ôei (Muromachi period) to shintô era, mainly in Seki, Mino province. It is difficult to distinguish each generation since there are a few swords which have signature, even secular name and Zu-ryo-mei(received honored title) except first generation Kanetsune in Ô-ei period. This sword is considered made by Kanetsune in Tensho period, since it has the characteristic of shinto, deep noi-kuchi of hamon and mei-furi(feature of signature.) Sagami-no-kami Masatsune was junior of Kanetsune. It was said that Masatsune also made the signature Kanetsune for first signature. [ Condition ] It has already polished. Excellent.
