歴史 History

„Bishū Osafune Sukenaga“ (備州長船祐永), he was the second son of Sukehira (祐平) and his successor because the first-born son Sukemori (祐盛) was adopted by the 11th gen. Shichibei Sukesada (七兵衛祐定), Sukenaga was the best smith of the shinshintō-era Bizen-Yokoyama group and we know blades from the early Tenpō era (天保, 1830-1844) to the third year of Kaei (嘉永, 1850), he died on the second day of the sixth month Kaei four (嘉永, 1851) at the age of 57, he signed also with a chrysanthemum and the character for „Ichi“ (一) and claimed to be the 56th gen. after Tomonari („Tomonari gojūroku-daison“, 友成五十六代孫), dense ko-itame which tends to muji, chōjimidare in nioi-deki, the chōji can also tend to kikka-chōji or kobushi-gata-chōji, narrow sugu-yakidashi, we also know hamon in ko-nie-deki like gunome-chōji or suguha (Info from Markus)

新刀期の横山一派は備前国長船の地で栄え、新々刀期を経て明治の廃刀令まで続く御家です。横山加賀介藤原朝臣祐永は「友成五十六代孫」と号しました。本作は祐永の円熟した技が随所に見られる作品です。

本刀体配は、刃長が一尺弱。平造で、身幅、重ね共に確りとし、姿が美しい短刀です。地鉄は小板目肌がよく練れて地沸が付き淡く映りが立ちます。刃文は匂い口締まりこころに小沸がついて、直で焼き出し丁子乱になる明るく冴えた刃文を焼いています。刃中には足、葉が働きます。帽子はそのまま乱れて先小丸へ深く返ります。茎は生ぶで錆味がよく、確りとした鏨使いで菊紋と一文字、さらに長銘が刻されています。この作品は焼刃の完成度の高さ、要するに匂いの強さと幅が限りなく均一に焼かれている点、それらを実現するためには鍛肌が密でなければならず、本刀は何時もながらに上手であり、横山祐永の作域の特徴が顕著に表れ、卓越した技量を十分に示した感動の逸品です。銀無垢二重はばき、特別保存刀剣鑑定書。

The Yokoyama clan in the Shintou period flourished in the land of Osafune in Bizen Province, and continued through the Shinshintou period until the Meiji era ban on swords. Yokoyama Kagasuke Fujiwara no Ason Sukenaga called himself ‘Tomonari fifty-sixth grandson’. This work is a work in which Yuunaga’s mature technique can be seen everywhere.

The blade length of the main sword arrangement is a little less than 1 shaku. It is a flat sword with a solid width and stacking, and a beautiful figure. The ground iron has a well-kneaded koitame-hada, which gives it a faint reflection. The blade pattern is a bright and clear blade pattern that has a tight mouth and a small boil in the heart, and is directly baked. The legs and leaves work in the blade. The hat is disturbed as it is and returns deeply to the Sakikomaru. The stem is fresh and has a good rust taste, and the chrysanthemum crest, one character, and a long signature are engraved with a solid chisel. This work has a high degree of perfection of the baked blade, in other words, the strength and width of the smell are uniformly baked. It is an impressive masterpiece that fully demonstrates the outstanding skill of Yokoyama Yukenaga. Solid silver double habaki, specially preserved sword appraisal certificate.
