YOSHIMITSU SHO-AN (t: AWATAGUCHI MASAMITSU): KANBARA JU. Studied
        SENJUIN and TEGAI traditions. Some sight similarity of
        styles to claim him the same man as SENJUIN YOSHIMITSU.
        An AWATAGUCHI student, his blades have been confused
        with AWATAGUCHI YOSHIMITSU. Many were gift swords, and 
        so, were attributed as the work of the latter. TOSA
        YOSHIMITSU made unusually thick TANTO where the round
        FUKURA has an abrupt turn to the point. YOWAI MOKUME with
        MASAME has JI-NIE. Although a tired piece will obscure,
        color and moisture of TOSA JI-NIE  will not compare with
        AWATAGUCHI YOSHIMITSU. NIE HOSO-SUGUHA has strays. 
        Note: SENJUIN YOSHIMITSU is an uneven GUNOME-MIDARE.

YOSHIMITSU(6) BUN-MEI:KATANA and thick,narrow UCHIZORI TANTO. 
        Bright standing ITAME with MASAME that runs. KO-NIE HOSO-
        SUGU NOTARE BA or GUNOME NOTARE mix.
