He learned from his grandfather (First generation Kuniie) with his brother, and his remarkable talent blossomed after exhibiting for the first time in a Modern Master Sword Contest in 1966. He has won “the Commissioner for Cultural Affairs Award” three times, “NBTHK Meiyo-Kaicho Award (Honorary Chairman Award)” twice in succession, “Kunzan Award”, “Kanzan Award”, and many other awards.

He is one of Japan’s leading swordsmiths. This sword is 2 Shaku 4 Sun 9 Bu 5 Rin (75.6cm) long.
The blade shows a wide blade and normal thickness and deep Koshizori and emulated a magnificent sword of the Fukuoka Ichimonji school during the Kamakura period.
The Jigane is a fine Ko-Itame partly mixed with Mokume, bright, silvery, and powerful.
The Hamon is quite bright and clear and shows Juka-Choji from Fukuoka Ichimonji school.
Plenty of Choji-Ashi are seen.
