歴史 History

Toda Hikozaemon is one of the “Three Owari Masters of Genroku.” At the time, Toda had a great deal of influence on the artistic part of that period.

Huge Iron Katchu-shi Tsuba. Nicely forged plate with a raised rim as is the style of Katchu-shi. Katchushi means armour-smith in Japanese. So, it is said that the definition of Katchushi-Tsuba is tsuba made by armuor-smiths or swordsmith craftsmen.
