歴史 History

 

 

Tegarayama Masashige was a son of the Tegarayama Ujishige who was born at Horeki 10th 1760, and moved to Oosaka and then Edo and lived Kanda area.

He studied under the Suishinshi masahide about Doranba hamon. He also worked for Matudaira Sadanobu in Ousyu Shirakawa. At that time, Masahide was well known sword makers of the Doranba hamon and many students studied by Kato tsunahide, Cyounsai Tsunatoshi, Ozaki suketaka and Akama Tsunanobu but Masahide changed to make Doranba hamon to old Koto blade which is kogunome and kocyoji midair hamon because of making strong swords.

Tegarayama Masashige was influenced a lot by Tsuda Sukehiro and continued to make Doranba or O-gunome midair swords.
