"朱塗鞘松代拵" (Shu-nuri-zaya Matsushiro-koshirae)

It was considered that Ki-shû Sekidô began as Tosa-Shôkan Tame-yasu moved into Ki-i province. The school flourished, mainly during Kan-ei through En-pô. Then, most of them moved to Ô-saka. Yasu-hiro was born as second son of Tame-yasu in Kishû province. He signed his first signature as "安廣"(Yasu-hiro) or changed to it. He contributed a lot for the enhancement of Ô-saka sekidô school prosperity. Some generation of same "康廣" continued. They created the swords in same Bizen-den style, such as chô-jî midare, or ô-gunome-midare with deep nie and nioi. This swords was considered created by later generation.
