MASATSUNE EI-EN 987, the first, to 
                    
MASATSUNE HO-GEN 1156: In the 5th generation 
            _______________________________________
MASATSUNE EI-EN (f: OSHU ARIMASA): Contemporaries, MASATSUNE and
        TOMONARI are often compared. Classic study holds three
        generations of MASATSUNE in the earlier school, EI-EN 
        987, CHO-WA 1012 and CHO-GEN 1028. Present examples are 
        late HEIAN to early KAMAKURA styles. An early work should
        portray a narrow KO-MIDARE BA. The expected MASATSUNE 
        YAKIBA from extant pieces of HO-GEN 1156 to HEI-JI 1159 
        is wide and may vary in height with long undulations. YO
        dots the interior of KO-MIDARE GUNOME patterns to mark a
        near CHOJI. ASHI and YO drop from a smooth but gaped, 
        and occasionally jutted line.

        MASATSUNE MEITO - EI-EN SUGATA with thin YAKIBA? or
                        - GEN-RYAKU SUGATA with wide YAKIBA?

        There are several theories: The line started with OSHU 
        TARO MASATSUNE in EI-EN, OSHU ARIMASA the father and 
        continued, or the line started before GEN-RYAKU. MUTSU
        and KO-BIZEN smiths are known to have had interchange and
        their work can be starkly similar, a fact always alluded
        to in reference. MASATSUNE: HEIAN SUGATA, either mildly 
        or deeply curved KOSHIZORI TACHI where the arc relaxes 
        through the upper to find a small KO-KISSAKI. Blades are
        narrow. Tightly forged and standing KO-ITAME with MOKUME
        is veiled in JI-NIE and may show UTSURI. Sound steel is a
        special characteristic. Color may have a dark feeling. 
        Note: O-HADA reminds one to consider TOMONARI. CHU-width 
        KO-MIDARE GUNOME HA with ASHI and YO. BOSHI will be wide
        and smooth to an even flowing KO-MARU and short KAERI. 
        NAKAGO is not as well finished as TOMONARI and will have
        a rounded as opposed to flattened KURIJIRI. Two-character
        MEI have little difference between generations. Appraisal
        weighs SUGATA and age of NAKAGO as to time.
