NAGASHIGE TEI-WA (f: MITSUNAGA, br: CHOGI): From KEM-MU 1334.
Also signed NAOFUSA. Made TACHI and TANTO said to
resemble SANENAGA which in turn creates a theory that
SANENAGA was the grandfather. His style is also said
similar to FUKUOKA SABEI-JO NAGANORI, another possible
relative advanced. Once thought another signature of
CHOGI, NAGASHIGE's wholly BIZEN style has proved him the
brother. His NIE is considered absorbed from CHOGI rather
than as a product of study with MASAMUNE. Also study of
NAGASHIGE's steel proves his work BIZENTO. His SOSHU-
style TANTO are considered his specialty and arise from
the SOSHU popularity and his association with his
brother. Date theories have been confidently resolved
with study of extant TACHI, placing KEM-MU.
