歴史 History

According Fujishiro Yoshio sensei’s Shintoshu, p.165 this smith is Yamato Daijo Sukesada, adoptive son of Kozuke Dija Sukesada, who at the end of the Genroku period (1688-1704) made dai saku for adoptive father.

His personal name was Shichi no Shin, initially he used the name Sukenobu in his signatures. Yokoyama Shichi no Shin was the 5th son of Sichibee, in Shotoku 6th (1716) he received the title of Yamamoto Daijo.
