歴史 History

 

This smith is the most important representative of the Bizen tradition in the Shin-Shinto period. He was the second son of YOKOYAWA SUKE-HIRA (His Father).

He was born in Kansei 7th, (1795) and as a child he used the name YULI, later he was called KANU-NOSUKE. On the 13th of the 2th month of Tempo 4th (February 13th, 1833) he received the title of KAGA-SUKE. He passed away on the 2th of the 6th month of Kaei 4th (June 2th, 1851) at the age of 57.

He considered himself to the 56th generation descendant of the famous Tomonari of Bizen. This often mentioned in his signatures. The succession runs through Kawachi and Kami Sukesada (1688-1704) and Yokoyama Sozaemon no Jo Sukesada (1661-1673).

According to Token to Rekishi No: 509 there were 4 other generations of Sukenaga (the 57th, 58th, 59th and the 60th generations after Tomonari).
