A very thorough study of the work of Mino, by school and smith; a wealth of information. Mino was a late comer to the sword making, which began around the North-South Dynasty period (). Mino became a famous produce as it was controlled by powerful daimyos (feudal lords) during the Sengoku period (late 15 th century to end of 16 th century) which caused many skillful swordsmiths to move to Mino.

A Tanto of the Mino Tradition: This tanto has recently papered to the famous Kanefusa, a historically important smith of the Mino Province. With the Mino tradition finally established, it’s productivity began to increase rapidly, as swordsmiths of the Mino province worked late into the Muromachi Period.

Here, he founded the Seki School, which eventually branched out extensively, taking a prominent place in the history of smith art in Mino Province. With the formation and development of this school, Kinjū significantly contributed to the creation of the last of the Five Schools of Japanese Swordsmiths (Gokaden): Mino-Den.

Cox. 8 x ", pp., numerous b/w illustrations, paper, Brisbane, Providing a comprehensive information in English on Mino swords, this book is a compilation of published descriptions and information of Mino blades and smiths up to the Meiji era Haito Rei (sword-wearing ban).

The Yamato Tegai (大和手搔) school got its name from the fact that its workshop was built in front of the gate Tengai-mon belonging to the Todaiji Temple in Nara. The first generation Kanenaga (包永) who worked around is known to be the founder of the Yamato Tegai (大和手搔) school.

I had read previously that Nobunaga made a lot of use of the Mino swordsmiths and this is one reason why the Mino tradition proliferated in the mid to late s and ended up spreading to castle towns where it became one of the primary sources for the Shinto tradition.

Nobunaga with his use of firearms was an iconoclast who thought ouside the box. Kinju is one of the Masamune Juttestu and he is one of the founders of Mino Kaji as well as Kaneuji. Swords with his mei are rare, but there are relatively more mumei kiwame (authenticated) ones.

Compared with the works by Shizu school, many of his mumei swords have such work styles as hada tachi and little round gunome instead of togari gunome.

Recently Japanese swords have gained enormous popularity as art objects with collectors and enthusiasts around the world, but until now much of the most detailed information on the subject has been available only in Japanese.
